Thanks for feedback and info about --with-abi-version=... . I see about ABI change and stretch release though just wondering: with introduction of libncurses6* which will be there along with currently present libncurses5* we are not changing ABI for libncurses5 and thus all packages which already use libncurses won't be affected before explicit change to their build-depends from libncurses5-dev to libncurses6-dev to them. I mean even if we add libncurses6* packages keeping libncurses5* in place there also, it won't break anything. Does this maybe change something about the time when libncurses6 can be introduced? Thanks, Kirill
