Package: gnome-music
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

gnome-music does not start since 3.27.90-1 (at least for me it was that version). The error I get:

foo at bar:~$ gnome-music 
Traceback (most recent call last):

ValueError: Namespace Goa not available

   * What led up to the situation?

I updated from 3.26.1-4 to 3.27.90-1 and it stopped working. I was not sure why and didn't bother looking into it. Since then my update log for gnome-music looks like following:

[UPGRADE] gnome-music:amd64 3.27.90-1 ->
[UPGRADE] gnome-music:amd64 -> 3.28.0-1
[UPGRADE] gnome-music:amd64 3.28.0-1 ->
[REINSTALL] gnome-music:amd64
[UPGRADE] gnome-music:amd64 -> 3.28.1-1
[UPGRADE] gnome-music:amd64 3.28.1-1 ->

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

I just discovered that installing gir1.2-goa-1.0 solved the problem.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

It works now.

Please consider adding gir1.2-goa-1.0 to gnome-music's dependencies. I'm not sure why it needs it, it's not using anything related to goa (Gnome Online Accounts), but that's how it is.

Thank you for your work.
