Package: libnative-platform-java Version: 0.11-4 Severity: serious Justification: makes other package FTBFS
Hi, gradle in unstable works with libnative-platform-java 0.10+dfsg-2 but does not work with libnative-platform-java 0.11-4. A detailed explaination for gradle can be seen in #844020. This problematic situation leads to several packages FTBFS, at least htsjdk (#843686) and gradle itself. Normaly, if a new version of a library do not works, by design, with program compiled with the old version, a package rename (and an SONAME bump for ELF libraries) is required in order to avoid to silently break reverse dependencies. I do not know libnative-platform-java enough to know if this breakage is known and normal (i.e. a package rename should have been done) or if this is a plain bug.
