Libpng maintainers want to update libpng from 1.2 to 1.5.
libpng of ABI and API has been changed by change of 1.2 to 1.5, so it
needs a transition from libopng12 to libpng15.
We tested building of the package depending on libpng12.
FTBFS by this change is reported and is summarized below.
Almost all packages have not been corrected yet.
And it is necessary to change Build-depends of almost all packages
into libpng-dev from libpng12-dev.
Is there a good reason why the new libpng-dev couldn't at least Provide
libpng12-dev in the short term? Would this allow some (most?) packages
to be binNMUed?
