Before starting a new transition, they should look at the overlap between
reverse-dependencies of mysql, php that will need rebuilt for the
transition, and packages that are currently in -proposed waiting to migrate
as part of the poppler transition.

We wouldn't want new no-change rebuild uploads of packages that depend on
poppler causing the two transitions to be entangled, preventing poppler from
migrating to the release until mysql,php are also ready to migrate.
