Package: gobject-introspection
Version: 0.10.8-2
Severity: important


dh_girepository guess the minimal required version of gir packages from
the version specified in the build-dependencies.

Since the policy now requires that the -dev packages depend against the
gir packages, lot of packages have removed explicit gir package
build-dependencies. This lead to binary packages depending on gir
packages without minimal version.

I guess that another way to get the minimal version of gir packages
must be implemented.
