Rules-Requires-Root is missing from the file
Over time, Debian has sucessively narrowed the steps for which elevated privileges are required. It speeds up the building of installation packages in the archive. Eventually, Debian will switch the default archive-wide behaviour to expedite the build process further.
Please declare explicitly that the sources do not require root privileges. You can
use the setting
Rules-Requires-Root: no in the source stanza of
debian/control, but please verify with
the installation packages produced are in fact identical.
For more information please consult:
- debian/rules and Rules-Requires-Root (Section 4.9.2) in the Debian Policy Manual
- Rules-Requires-Root (Section 5.6.31) in the Debian Policy Manual
