Subject: [devuan-dev] bug#695: cgmanager: Uninstallable as libnih1 and libnih-dbus1 no longer available
Source: cgmanager
Version: 0.41-2+devuan1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Debian removed src:libnih in June[1] so cgmanager's dependencies are no longer

cgmanager itself is also deprecated[2]

src:cgmanager needs removing from ceres and testing.

The significant external rdepends are:

Reverse Depends:
Depends: numad
Recommends: debian-podman-config-override

Reverse Depends:
Depends: consolekit (>= 0.28)

The numad dependency is causing libvirt FTBFS.

Consolekit will need to be build without cgmanager, if possible, if we want to
continue to offer it.

Podman config override needs cgmanager recommendation removing. Other options
are still viable.
