Version: 2.24.5-3.1
Severity: important

The libgnome-keyring library is deprecated and its usage is strongly
discouraged [1].

Your package libgnomeui declares a build-dependency on
libgnome-keyring-dev or links against libgnome-keyring0.

Please update your application to use libsecret instead [2].
Such a port should ideally happen with upstream being involved.

On behalf of the Debian GNOME team,
