Package: shadow
Version: 1:4.2-3.1
Severity: important
Tags: sid stretch
User: debian-gcc at lists.debian.org
Usertags: hardening-wrapper

This package builds using the hardening-wrapper package, which
is now replaced by dpkg-dev's DEB_BUILD_MAINT_OPTIONS settings.

Please consider dropping the build dependency of hardening-wrapper
and use the DEB_BUILD_MAINT_OPTIONS settings.

The goal is to remove hardening-wrapper for the stretch release.
Discussion about the removal is tracked in https://bugs.debian.org/836162

The severity of this report is likely to be raised before the release,
so that the hardening-wrapper package can be removed for the release.
