Package: libpeas
Version: 1.1.1-2
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

Vala itself now ships a vapi for libpeas.

I bumped into an issue where the debain vapi file overwrote
the behavior of the vapi file of vala itself.

See gnome bug <https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=660361>

In this bug the vala binding maintainer Luca Bruno states the following:
packages except the library and vala shouldn't ship foreign vapis. They
should be kept internal to the application.
That is, if libpeas decides to ship a vapi is ok, but not others.

When now bugs in the libpeas bindings get fixed such will never show
up on a debian system as the vapi file of the debian package will
always win over the vapi file of the vala package.

I'm gonna mark my other two bugs on this subject as invalid:

Attached is a patch which removes the vapi file from the package
