Protocol Buffers are a flexible, efficient, automated mechanism for
serializing structured data - similar to XML, but smaller, faster, and
simpler. You define how you want your data to be structured once, then you can
use special generated source code to easily write and read your structured
data to and from a variety of data streams and using a variety of languages.
You can even update your data structure without breaking deployed programs
that are compiled against the "old" format.
This is the "protobuf-c" implementation of Protocol Buffers in C.
This package contains the "protoc-c" code generator that creates C stubs from
Protocol Buffers .proto files. These stubs must be compiled and linked against
the libprotobuf-c support library.

[ Robert S. Edmonds ]
* protobuf-c-compiler: add a Recommends on the -dev package;
closes: #704877.
* A side-effect of bumping the debhelper compat level to 9 is to enable
hardened build flags; closes: #673674.
