   * New upstream version:
     - drop the CVE-2021-3421-CVE-2021-20271 and CVE-2021-20266 patches,
       they were taken from upstream

       the Python tools were moved to a separate source package

       moved to a separate source package

     - update the list of tools that we do not let the configure script
       autodetect for usrmerge-related reasons

       suite files; the sources are in another directory

       functions from a mostly internal-use library; no packages in
       the Debian archive reference the dropped symbols

       database before performing this upgrade
     - add the Facebook copyright notice for the fsverity code
   * Add libfsverity support.
   * Add back the Python packaging scripts until the python-rpm-packaging
     project cuts a release.
   * Drop the rpm2html suggestion, this package is not in Debian.
   * Fix the Bug-Debian headers for the rpmdb-in-home patch.
   [ Pino Toscano ]
   * Improve the dependencies of librpm-dev:
     - drop libc6-dev, it is in build-essential
     - restrict libaudit-dev as linux-any, as it is available only on Linux
       (audit support is Linux-specific)
