Hi Aline and Frederic,
I came along this issue to drop the libvirt-bin dependency , but I had to realize that kimchi and ginger hang outdated in the archive since a way too long time.
- initial upload in wily
- no fix/update since then
- upstream development continued
- in newer releases broken lacking the upstream fixes
- upstream provides out of tree .debs to install
I hereby try to reach out to the maintainers that drove the initial uploads into Ubuntu and the recent .deb packages hosted by the kimchi-project.
If you are willing and able to update kimchi/ginger to a working state in the Ubuntu Archive please confirm and do that.
Otherwise - if e.g. the out-of-archive .deb is the current strategy we should consider removing it from the archive in artful.
