Source: libpgplot-perl
Version: 1:2.21-3
Severity: important
User: libpng at packages.debian.org
Usertags: libpng15-transition


Libpng maintainers plan transition of libpng[0].
Version 1.2 is used for libpng of current debian, but will shifts 
to version 1.5 in this transition.
Your package still does it depending on libpng12-dev.
We cannot shift in transition mentioned above. 
Please change Build-Depends of the package from libpng12-dev to libpng-dev.

Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 8), perl, gfortran, libextutils-f77-perl, libpng12-dev, libx11-dev, pgplot5, x11proto-core-dev, chrpath
