Hi, I just wanted to point out that Ubuntu uses autopkgtests to check
uploads before allowing them into the regular development repository.
This bug is causing a very large number of autopkgtests to fail, which
is disrupting Ubuntu development work. Generally, anything outputted
to stderr will fail the autopkgtest.

Here's a sample of what we see:

acc                  FAIL stderr: dh_acc: doit() + doit_*() calls will
no longer spawn a shell in compat 11 for single string arguments
(please use complex_doit instead)

See full log in one of the newer failures at

This affects a lot of packages:

Could you not emit that warning to stderr especially since I see only
one package using compat 11 now?
