and subject line Bug#935936: fixed in openssh 1:8.0p1-6
has caused the Debian Bug report #935936,
regarding openssh-client should not depend on runit-helper
to be marked as done.

misconfiguration somewhere. Please contact [hidden email] immediately.)
openssh-client 1:8.0p1-5 introduces a dependency on runit-helper. As the
*client* doesn't contain any runit script, it should not pull in any
such dependency. I'd guess that the dependency got added to every binary
package built from the openssh source package, rather than only to the
relevant binary package.
(The server really shouldn't have that dependency, either, on platforms
that don't have runit installed, but that's a separate problem. Is there
any particular reason runit-helper couldn't just become a dependency of
runit, and then handle all installed packages when you install runit?)
We believe that the bug you reported is fixed in the latest version of
openssh, which is due to be installed in the Debian FTP archive.
