Hi Jon,

(CCing the ftpmaster team in case they can help us solve the situation)

I am an upstream maintainer of the LTTng project (http://lttng.org).

It appears that lttng-tools is currently out of sync with lttng-ust and
lttng-modules in Debian and sid (unstable), and missing in Debian stretch
(testing). It appears that this situation has been ongoing for a while.

The following search: https://packages.debian.org/search?searchon=names&keywords=lttng
shows the situation:

- sid (unstable):

lttng-ust* : 2.7.2-1
lttng-modules* : 2.7.2-1
lttng-tools: 2.6.0-1ppc64el1
liblttng-ctl0: 2.6.0-1ppc64el1
liblttng-ctl-dev: 2.6.0-1ppc64el1

- stretch (testing):

lttng-ust* : 2.7.2-1
lttng-modules* : 2.7.2-1
lttng-tools: <none>
liblttng-ctl0: <none>
liblttng-ctl-dev: <none>

In the currently situation, users need to build lttng-tools from source
to use lttng-ust and lttng-modules on Debian testing/sid, which defeats
the purpose of distribution packages.

What can we do, as upstream, to help solve this packaging issue ?
