I've talked to Shaun, and suggested the following:
1/ the mallard .rng files are added back for now
2/ the configure checks which require those .rng files are removed, i.e.
projects which are autoreconfed won't need those .rng files anymore for
"make check"
3/ for 3.6 or later we drop those files (Shaun wants to move them into a
separate package).

By the time 3.6 is released, hopefully most of the affected packages
will have had a new upstream releases, where the build system has been
generated with gdu 0.20.8+

If those .rng files are moved into a separate module, and once there is
a upstream release for it, we could also package it for Debian and make
gdu depend on it. In this case we'd have to make sure that the new
package takes over the .rng files from the gdu package.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
