Looking again and reading through the associated bug reports, it looks a
bit better than I thought; I really shouldn't have to read through
longish bug report logs to find out why a change has been made to the
libav maintainers (Cced):
- the changelog for -5 mentions making transitional packages arch:all,
but not a number of removals of "Multi-Arch: foreign" that seem to have
been applied to some packages.
- the changelog also doesn't mention the dropping of the ffmpeg
- this change looks slightly odd:
* Do not run doxygen if it is not installed.
doxygen is in B-D-Indep and only appears to be used when building the
arch:all -doc package. On that basis, why would it not always be
installed when required?
