[Pkg-crosswire-devel] Xiphos badly broken in the next Debian stable

FYI: The next Debian stable "Jessie" is about to be released on April, 25th.
I'm currently trying it and I'm afraid there are still outstandings bugs in the packaging of Xiphos, making it merely usable:
  #770713 xiphos: Preferences not working
  #772600 xiphos: unable to insert links in Studypad

The problem is well known, and has been reported on gnomesword-devel, see:
Fix: Xiphos 3.2.2 should be built against libgtk-2.0, instead of libgtk-3.0.

Bug fixes must be *in Jessie* before April, 18th, see:
