Package: gitg
Version: 3.32.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

In trying to debug an issue with gitg from the gitg package, I was asked to install the debug
symbols package so as to get a better strace and gdb traceback.

However, there seems to be no gitg debug symbols package for Debian Sid on amd64.

> aptitude search gitg
i   gitg                                                                                                         - git repository viewer
p   libjs-jquery-gitgraph                                                                                        - convert git log --graph to image with HTML5 canvas

I was told I should install the package gitg-dbgsym but clearly this does not exist for Debian
Sid on amd64.
