Package: python-ipalib
Version: 4.7.1-3
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

I've just updated an IPA client to buster and installed freeipa-client
from SID. After the update I looked for transitional packages and have

# dpkg -l | grep dummy
ii  gnupg-agent       2.2.12-1   all          GNU privacy guard - cryptographic agent (dummy transitional package)
ii  gnupg2            2.2.12-1   all          GNU privacy guard - a free PGP replacement (dummy transitional package)

When I try to remove these apt will remove IPA client:

# LANG=C apt purge gnupg2 gnupg-agent
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  freeipa-client* gnupg-agent* gnupg2* python-ipaclient* python-ipalib*
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 5 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
After this operation, 6996 kB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]

When I look at the packages gnupg-agent we get the hint:

 This is a dummy transitional package; please use gpg-agent instead.

I think we can change the depends and be done.

gnupg2 has this:

 This is a dummy transitional package that provides symlinks from gpg2
 to gpg.

Do we use the gpg2 command? I have no idea...

Thanks for the updated packages - I think the client is ready for buster.
