Severity: important
User: util-linux at packages.debian.org
Usertags: fdisk-build-dependency


As recently announced on debian-devel-announce[1] packages who need
any of sfdisk, cfdisk or fdisk will need to add a dependency on the
new fdisk package.

Your package lvm2 showed up on codesearch.debian.net and a very quick
analysis suggested you might want to add a build-dependency as your
package only seems to use things from the fdisk package in its

Please use the backwards-compatible way of specifying the
build-dependency as suggested in the debian-devel-announce mail:

fdisk <!nocheck> | util-linux (<< 2.29.2-3~) <!nocheck>

If your more detailed analysis shows this should not be needed then
please just close this bug report stating the results of your
analysis (and if so sorry for bothering you).
