[DSE-Dev] Bug#819200: ruby-selinux: implicit depends on libruby

Package: ruby-selinux
Version: 2.4-3
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Your package ruby-selinux has an implicit version-specific
dependency on librubyX.Y, but doesn't declare it in Depends:.

Please add Depends: librubyA.A | librubyB.B | ... to ruby-selinux
as appropriate for the versions of ruby you're shipping extensions

The easiest way of adding those dependencies might be by actually
linking with librubyX.Y, even if the extension.so doesn't use any of
libruby's symbols. While I see your package uses swig to build the
.so, I don't know enough swig to propose a patch.

Using severity important instead of serious as right now your
package ships binaries for ruby 2.2.0 and 2.3.0, due to a lucky
binNMU for the python3.5 transition. (ruby 2.2.0 is going away.)

Please correct this in your next upload.

Many thanks,
