Package: openjpeg2
Version: 2.3.1-1
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 openjpeg2 on i386 because
it's a build-dependency of ffmpeg, but the libopenjpip-server package built
from this source has dependencies on other packages that are not being kept
as part of the compatibility library set (spawn-fcgi).

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 this binary
package on Ubuntu?

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