Do you mean bullseye (and bullseye+1)? If so, that's probably a safe
decision right now if you already have a good version of anki in testing.

Looking through the anki source, the Bazel packaging doesn't actually look
*that* complicated. However, if there's not a compelling reason to rush,
I'd suggest waiting until Bazel builds in Debian are more stable (and
easier). I anticipate Bazel achieving First Class Citizen status sometime
during the bullseye+1 cycle so that'll be a good time to pursue this
