That's WOW. i was aware some packages started build-depending on it, but nothing like this. Also, broken (and also missing, fwiw) build-dep does not causes removal from testing , so that's sound weird+wrong. Can you tell me of such package so i can get a look at what's going on more closely?  Actually I find this behaviour wrong and I have on my todo to propose a patch for Britney to consider also them. -- regards, Mattia Rizzolo GPG Key: 66AE 2B4A FCCF 3F52 DA18 4D18 4B04 3FCD B944 4540 .''`. more about me: http://mapreri.org : :' : Launchpad user: https://launchpad.net/~mapreri `. `'` Debian QA page: https://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=mattia `-
