As you know we/I regularly backport diffoscope to Debian stable, so we care about having those tools available there as well. So, do you plan on making gnupg-utils available in stretch-backports (with all the ongoing maintenance that such choice entails) or do you think that having an alternate build-dependency+recommends is a way to go here (possibly with a version restriction, e.g. gnupg-utils | gnupg (<< 2.1.21-4~) )? I'd like to avoid having a delta between buster and stretch-bpo, at least not this early in the development cycle.. Also, do you plan on sending a patch for diffoscope? :D -- regards, Mattia Rizzolo GPG Key: 66AE 2B4A FCCF 3F52 DA18 4D18 4B04 3FCD B944 4540 .''`. more about me: https://mapreri.org : :' : Launchpad user: https://launchpad.net/~mapreri `. `'` Debian QA page: https://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=mattia `-
