Description Matthew Miller 2014-06-30 16:15:09 UTC
This is similar to bug #908081. The systemd-journal-remote binary links against libmicrohttpd, which uses gnutls.

This isn't inherently bad (and is certainly better than a new httpd implementation or, worse, new crypto), but currently gnutls isn't required in minimal cloud images, and it's unfortunate introduce a new crypto library there, as it significantly increases the chance of needing to go through a security drill in updating the images.

Please subpackage systemd-journal-remote so this isn't necessary. (Possibly it could go in the *same* subpackage?) Thank you!

Yes. I want to put gatewayd and the other utilities which use µhttpd and/or gnutls in one subpackage.
