Version: 1.44.7-1
Severity: minor

Dear maintainers,

In Ubuntu, we are in the process of moving the i386 architecture to a
compatibility-only layer on amd64.  We are keeping pango1.0 on i386 because
it's a relevant part of a GTK-based compatibility stack, but the
libpango1.0-0 package built from this source is a transitional package with
dependencies on other packages that are not being kept as part of the
compatibility library set (libpangox-1.0-0).

We would like to drop this binary package rather than keeping it around in
the Ubuntu archive and uninstallable.  Would you please consider applying
the attached patch, or something like it, to omit building theis binary
package on Ubuntu?

Thanks for considering,
Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
