Package: libgnutls28-dev
Version: 3.5.16-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

The package libidn2-0-dev is now a transitional package and has been
superseded by libidn2-dev.

This means libgnutls28-dev should use libidn2-dev to satisfy its Build-Depends
and Depends requirements.

The switch to libidn2-dev also means that libidn2-0-dev is no longer Multi-
Arch: same. Unfortunately, this change now prevents libgnutls28-dev from being
installed on multiarch-enabled systems, which is a serious problem for packages
such as Wine.

I hope this issue can be fixed as soon as possible.

Thank you.
