TortoiseHg not in Buster?

Since upgrading to buster, I have lost tortoisehg.

Anyone know if this package is coming back?

Best I could find was this :

Did you read that bug report? It says one of the dependencies was dropped in Buster and is replaced by a new one. The maintainer just had to change the dependency in the package, and the updated one is in Sid now. I guess it should move to Buster soon.
Dear Maintainer,

Your package tortoisehg depends against the python-gobject
transitional package.

We would like to drop this transitional package for buster.

Could you please switch to either python-gobject-2 (if your package
is using the old python binding for GObject) or to python-gi (if your
package is using the new gobject-introspection one).
