Bug#940531: ubuntu-dev-tools: Please drop bzr from Recommends: to Suggests:

Scott Kitterman-5
Package: ubuntu-dev-tools
Version: 0.173
Severity: normal

As part of the python2 removal effort, bzr is going away to be replaced
by brz.  Currently u-d-t Recommends: bzr, which will be a problem once
it is gone.  I reviewed the scripts that use bzr and they are either
obsolete (relate to the old Ubuntu bzr branch for every package scheme),
would only be used by someone who knows better (Ubuntu archive admin),
or use alternate mechanisms if bzr is not installed.

Even if bzr weren't being removed, I think Suggests would be more
appropriate now, but definitely since it's going away.
