Package: libschroedinger-1.0-0
Version: 1.0.11-2.1
Severity: serious
X-Debbugs-Cc: Debian Security Team <team at security.debian.org>

Dear Maintainer,

libschroedinger contains various possibly security relevant bugs
(see #787957 for the tip of the iceberg).

Furthermore it is no longer maintained upstream:
 * last release from 2012
 * homepage vanished

Thus I think stretch would be better of without this library.

As replacement, ffmpeg has a decent dirac decoder and also a
vc2 encoder, which is the intra-only subset of dirac that
got standardized by the SMPTE.

Best regards,
