Bug Description

rationale: needed by LibreOffice, a core app. In Quantal we used the internal version of libvisio and shipped it inside the LibreOffice package, so the code is in main already anyway.

Identical comments as from libcdr MIR bug 1124074 (same Debian packager and upstream authors, so makes sense I guess):

-Simple, modern packaging
-No delta
-No test suite
-No symbols file, but it's C++, so that's understandable
-debian/copyright file is a little malformed (missing license stanza), but that's an issue for NEW, not for MIR. Plus, this is from Debian so not worth a delta.
-Would be nice to see a bug subscriber
-This would normally need a security review, since it's a file parser, but since it's been in main, I'll skip that step. Splitting it out actually makes it easier to handle security issues.

*However*, it does have the lintian warning hardening-no-fortify-functions. Can you just check if that warning is a false or true positive? Otherwise, approved.

Identical comments as for libcdr MIR bug: The hardening-no-fortify-functions is a valid lintian warning. I sent upstream a bunch of patches adding multi-arch support and fixing hardening-no-fortify-functions and other lintian complaints.

Judging from the Email exchange with Rene hardening-no-fortify-functions isnt a concern for this.

@bdrung: Can we unblock this as your other changes are helpful, but no blockers?

@Björn: It's not my decision. It's the decision of the MIR team.

@MIR team: Is it okay to wait for the next Debian upload to get hardening-no-fortify-functions fixed or should I fix hardening-no-fortify-functions in Ubuntu and get back in sync with Debian with their next upload?

I have uploaded libvisio 0.0.24-1ubuntu1 which fixes the hardening-no-fortify-functions lintian warning.
