[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#870531: chromium: binaries are unstripped

Package: chromium
Version: 60.0.3112.78-1
Severity: important

I know chromium is a big package, but does the binary really have to be
_that_ large?

| $ ls -l /usr/lib/chromium/chromium 
| -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 225830528 Jul 27 05:22 /usr/lib/chromium/chromium

It turns out it has not been stripped:

| $ file /usr/lib/chromium/chromium 
| /usr/lib/chromium/chromium: ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib/ld-linux.so.2, for GNU/Linux 2.6.32, BuildID[sha1]=656049ae5adbd62d255d6c8b422cc5e5c512ab50, not stripped

In the git repository debian/rules for version 59.0.3071.104-1 contained
these lines:

| override_dh_strip:
| 	# skip dbgsym package for widevine to prevent duplication of the src package
| 	dh_strip -pchromium-widevine --no-automatic-dbgsym
| 	# this line can be removed once stretch is released
| 	dh_strip --remaining-packages --ddeb-migration='chromium-dbg (<< 47.0.2526.80-4~)'

And apparently the last two lines have been dropped accordingly in the
latest upload.  Which causes dh_strip to be skipped entirely for all
packages except chromium-widevine. :-/
