All reports of rules-requires-root-missing for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:
The debian/control file is missing an explicit Rules-Requires-Root field.
Traditionally, Debian packages have required root privileges for some debian/rules target requiring a split between build and binary targets. This makes the builds slower due to the increased amount of invocations as well as the overhead of fakeroot itself.
Please specify (eg.) Rules-Requires-Root: no in the debian/control source stanza, but packagers should verify using diffoscope(1) that the binaries built with this field present are identical.
Refer to /usr/share/doc/dpkg-dev/rootless-builds.txt.gz, Debian Policy Manual section 4.9.2 (
Rules-Requires-Root), and Debian Policy Manual section 5.6.31 (
Rules-Requires-Root) for details.
