Dear maintainer,

wmgtemp build-depends on libsensors4-dev, the development package
from lm-sensors. For historical reasons the development package is
versioned. Following the transition of the library to libsensors5,
it makes sense to rename the development package to libsensors-dev.

In that regard a "Provides: libsensors-dev" has been added. Given
wmgtemp uses a non-versioned Build-Depends it is already safe
to transition your package to use libsensors-dev instead of

There is no urgency (yet) to do the change, but it would be nice if
you can piggyback that change in the next upload. It should just be
a matter of running:

  sed -i -e 's/libsensors4-dev/libsensors-dev/g' debian/control
