Hi, Although the Debian package doesn't provide everything found in the upstream jacoco distribution, that doesn't mean that it is unusable. As Kai-Chung Yan mentioned, it is being used as a build dependency: $ reverse-depends -b libjacoco-java Reverse-Build-Depends ===================== * android-platform-tools-base And as a runtime dependency: $ reverse-depends libjacoco-java Reverse-Depends =============== * libgradle-android-plugin-java Therefore, I don't believe the severity of the bug should be increased. Instead, I think it should be a wishlist bug against src:jacoco to deliver the additional component(s). Identifying the necessary reverse dependencies needed to compile additional jacoco artifacts and filing wishlist bugs for those packages is also helpful. Cheers, tony
