Justification: fails to build from source (but built successfully in the past)


Your package failed to build on the buildds:

Package libreadline5-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:

E: Package 'libreadline5-dev' has no installation candidate

 abook      - text-based ncurses address book application
Closes: 553712 670445
 abook (0.6.0~pre2-3) unstable; urgency=low
   * Overlooked NMU done by Tim Retout while merging from experimental to
     unstable, resulting in (repeated) FTBFS:
     - debian/control: Build-Depend on libreadline6-dev instead of
       libreadline5-dev. (Closes: #553712)
   * Applied that again (closes: #670445)
