Bug#928107: shim-signed: FTBFS in buster (unmet build-depends)

Package: src:shim-signed
Version: 1.30
Severity: serious
Tags: ftbfs

Dear maintainer:

I tried to build this package in buster but it failed because the
build-depends may not be met in buster. This is the final message
given by sbuild:

      package: sbuild-build-depends-shim-signed-dummy
      version: 0.invalid.0
      architecture: amd64
      unsat-dependency: shim-unsigned:amd64 (= 15+1533136590.3beb971-5)

If this is really a bug in the shim-unsigned package in testing, for
not providing the exact functionality required by src:shim-signed to
build, and it needs to be reuploaded again, so be it, but then please
reassign this to shim-unsigned and use "affects src:shim-signed".

I see that both shim-signed and shim-unsigned are maintained by the
same team, so I really hope you can reach to an agreement here.

On the other hand, if we are going to release buster with unbuildable
packages, which imo we should never do, then this bug should be marked
buster-ignore, but the way I read Release Policy this is not automatic
and the maintainer should ask for permission to use buster-ignore first.
