E pre-depends-directly-on-multiarch-support

All reports of pre-depends-directly-on-multiarch-support for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The control file mentions multiarch-support in a Pre-Depends line. Usually multiarch-support is inserted into Pre-Depends via ${misc:Pre-Depends} by dh_makeshlibs. In order to be able to remove the multiarch-support package from glibc without updating every package, Pre-Depends: ${misc:Pre-Depends} should be used instead. Then multiarch-support can be removed by a change in debhelper followed by a binNMU of all affected packages.

Please also ensure that source package at least build-depends on debhelper version 9 or above.

In order to ease the multiarch-support removal the severity of this tag is important.

Severity: important, Certainty: possible
