My understanding is that the Ubuntu Security team does not want gparted's --enable-xhost-root option. I think that option is inappropriate for Debian too, but I had not filed the bug there yet.

Also, I have some changes from LP: #1709140 that are useful. For instance, you should be able to run some of the build tests.

I guess I didn't get around to uploading my work yet because of the googletest issue and autopkgtest issue, but neither of those are really blockers.

The appropriate team to subscribe is ~ubuntu-sponsors not ~ubuntu-archive. I encourage you to use requestsync from ubuntu-dev-tools to help file the bug next time. But in this case, Ubuntu would need a merge, not a sync because of my first point.

Thank you for maintaining gparted.

This bug was fixed in the package gparted - 0.30.0-3ubuntu1

gparted (0.30.0-3ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Sync with Debian (LP: #1709140, LP: #1735833)

  * Build-Depend on policykit-1 to install the PolicyKit policy
  * Install primary binary to /usr/sbin/; it didn't seem to run
    correctly in /usr/bin/

gparted (0.30.0-3) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Disable make check again.

gparted (0.30.0-2) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Merge the following changes from Ubuntu:
  * Switch to simple dh7 style rules
  * Enable all hardening flags
  * Bump debhelper compat to 10
  * Update debian/watch to watch for .gz or .xz tarballs too
  * Drop obsolete dirs, menu and .xpm

  * New upstream release (Closes: #857015, #432141)
