Debian Sid will remove apt-build

Postby shabbythought » 2018-09-18 04:53

When I was about to dist-upgrade my Debian Sid installation I noted that will remove the package "apt-build".

I am not sure why but possibly it lacks support and has not been maintained since a very long time. There was some comments on that already back in 2006:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=365427

However, I cannot find anything conclusive at

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgrepo ... =apt-build
https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/apt-build

My question is, if I let it be uninstalled, what other package(s) would provide the same or similar functionality of apt-build?
