Bug Description

Imported from Debian bug

Source: bzrtools
Version: 2.5+bzr786-1
Severity: important
User: <email address hidden>
Usertags: rsvg-removal


during an automated test it was detected that bzrtools uses the rsvg
utility [1].

This tool has long been deprecated and replaced by rsvg-convert. In a
recent upstream commit rsvg was removed from the librsvg package [2].

The rsvg-convert utility is command line compatible with rsvg, so the
update should be straight forward.

Please update bzrtools at your earliest convenience.


on behalf of the Debian GNOME team.

  * Use rsvg-convert rather than rsvg. Closes: #666472, LP: #971190
  * Disable version check to allow use with bzr 2.6.
  * Remove Arnaud Fontaine and Gustavo Franco from uploaders.
  * Fix Vcs-Bzr URL.
  * Add 03_testing: fix test suite run with newer versions of bzr.
