Visibility: warning

The given package appears to be a library package, but it has "Priority" of "required", "important", or "standard".

In general, a library package should only get pulled in on a system because some other package depends on it; no library package needs installation on a system where nothing uses it.

Please update debian/control and downgrade the severity to, for example, Priority: optional.
