Package: debootstrap
Version: 1.0.128+nmu3
Severity: grave

bluca's NMU on 2023-07-15 makes debootstrap produce chroots using the
aliased-dirs scheme.  While it's currently the default scheme for non-buildd
systems, it is both not supported by dpkg (with no solution in sight), but
is also likely to produce packages that are explicitely forbidden by a
recent CTTE ruling that disallows moving files between directories aliased
by the current usrmerge scheme.

Quoting the still unsolving issues is pointless (you can read about them
in massive threads in a number of places) as bluca seems to be ignoring
them completely.

But, what matters here is the CTTE ruling in #1035831 -- for the time being,
packages must not move files between locations affected by the aliasing.

Packages built in an usrmerged chroot place such files under /usr while
built without usrmerge into whatever place they were installed to -- which
is a direct breach of the ruling.

Thus, that change needs to be reverted for now, and all packages built
with 1.0.128+nmu3 need to be either rebuilt or at least checked for such
a violation (as most are unaffected).
