[Pkg-cryptsetup-devel] Bug#480157: libcryptsetup and header file needed

Package: cryptsetup
Version: 2:1.0.6-1
Severity: normal

libcryptsetup and its header file are no longer included in cryptsetup,
but another package for development is not available.

This library used to be there (both .a and .so), so developing a project
with cryptsetup support is no longer possible.

Thus, I suggest that either libcryptsetup and the header file are put
back into the cryptsetup package, or a separate package, say
libcryptsetup-dev, is provided that includes these files.

Thanks for consideration
