Package: cheese
Version: 3.12
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

I believe that gnome-video-effects should only be "recommends" for
Cheese unless there is an updated version of g-v-e that uses
gstreamer 1.0, since the main part of Cheese now uses gst1.0.

Unless of course Cheese truely does depend on g-v-e, in which
case they have overlooked something rather important in porting...

I have no interest or need for 0.10 on my system, and in general
it is more than time for everything to move away from it, as most
things have.
