Source: gmt
Version: 5.4.4+dfsg-2
Severity: wishlist


gmt currently depends aganst libpcre3 which is deprecated.

libpcre3 package description states:
 New packages should use the newer pcre2 packages, and existing
 packages should migrate to pcre2.

gmt also seems to support libpcre2, so it should maybe switch to
that new library?

Kind regards,

Laurent Bigonville
