Not for right now, but I'm filing this straight away for information.

gnome-desktop3 has bumped SONAME from 17 to 18 and so we need a
transition. I've uploaded to experimental/NEW and test built the
rdepends locally. Everything succeeded except for gnome-contacts which I
think is an independent FTBFS. Logs:


There is a sourceful change required to gnome-shell to adjust to the API
break - this is a runtime error rather than build-time (I guess I should
add a Breaks):


Ben file:

title = "gnome-desktop3";
is_affected = .depends ~ "libgnome-desktop-3-17" | .depends ~ "libgnome-desktop-3-18";
is_good = .depends ~ "libgnome-desktop-3-18";
is_bad = .depends ~ "libgnome-desktop-3-17";
