libguestfs (maintained by: mdbooth, ptoscano, rjones)
libguestfs-1.39.8-1.fc29.src requires debootstrap = 1.0.102-1.fc29
virt-dib-1.39.8-1.fc29.i686 requires debootstrap = 1.0.102-1.fc29

Of course I understand that it won't provide a maintainer for dpkg,
but will it stop libguestfs from being blocked?
