Bug Description

This is because golang-petname-dev depends on a non-existing binary package. Xenial doesn't have Go shared libraries setup.

==== SRU ====

[IMPACT]
This bug affects anyone with a build dependency in Xenial on golang-petname-dev. As far as I'm aware, that's just the lxd package.

[TEST CASE]
Simply 'sudo apt install golang-petname-dev'. Without this fix, it will fail to install, as reported above. With the fix, it will successfully install. You might also want to list the contents of the package with 'dpkg -L golang-petname-dev' and ensure that the file /usr/share/gocode/src/github.com/dustinkirkland/golang-petname/petname.go is installed, which is what is necessary for a xenial build.

[REGRESSION]
There should be no regression, as the package is currently not even installable.

Hello Stéphane, or anyone else affected,

Accepted golang-petname into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/golang-petname/2.4-0ubuntu1~16.04 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!
