gnutls 2.12.0


I have got a minor transition coming up: gnutls 2.12.0.

GnuTLS contains 4 libraries, some of these broke, but not the
important one:

libgnutls. The main library, some new symbols but no incompatible
changes. shlibs will be bumped, soname does not change. (Shipped in
package libgnutls26)

libgnutls-extra. non-LGPL code. shlibs bump but also no soname change.
(Shipped in package libgnutls26)

libgnutls-openssl. ABI breakage (changed public struct), but no API
breakage. soname bumped. This library used to be shipped in the
libgnutls26 package but I have moved it to a separate package, because
the soname version changed.

GnuTLS C++ wrapper. ABI breakage,  soname bumped. No reverse
dependencies. (libgnutlsxx26 and libgnutlsxx27).

Transition plan:
1. Find all packages linking against the OpenSSL wrapper library (extract
everything depending on libgnutls26, use objdump -p | grep NEEDED to
find linking binaries/librarires.) Last time I checked there were iirc
about 8 packages involved.

2. Doublecheck whether they build against the new version.

2. Add versioned Breaks for all packages linking against libgnutls-openssl
to the libgnutls26 package. I would use <= current-version-in-sid.

3. Upload to sid.

4. Trigger binNMUs for the packages found in 1.

Does this plan look ok? Any improvements?

I will follow up once I have uploaded 2.12.0 to experimental (2.11.7 is
available and should be basically identical.) and run through 1 and 2
of the transition plan.
