The python-pygit2 package in TW is broken in multiple ways -

Well given that [1] doesn't list any "Bugowners" the package is not
currently maintained so unless it magically fixes itself and starts
building again it will likely be dropped in the not too distant
if its a package that you and or your team still care about, you or
someone should request bugownership and maintainership in the devel
and start looking after the package, unless your really lucky and
someone else who's willing to.

Meanwhile, I've created a compat library libgit2-0_27 with
which pygit2 builds fine again. Packages can be retrieved from my home

I've submitted both libgit2-0_27 and my pygit2 which uses it
to devel:languages:python, hoping to get it into factory in the near
future. Upstream pygit2 devs seem to be still working on a reliable
pygit2 release for libgit2 0.28.x, there's no timeline when it'll be


PS: As several people have asked: No, simply removing the library
version check at build time was not enough. It resulted in test
suite failures.
