You can close the -dev and -utils bugs and retitle the libdmtx0 bug to
"ITP: libdmtx". See http://bugs.debian.org/ for instructions on how to
use the control interface to achieve this.

Typically the -dev package should be just libdmtx-dev, unless you
anticipate that it will be necessary to have both libdmtx0-dev and
libdmtx1-dev in the archive at the same time in the future. This may be
true for -utils also.
