Package: libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev
Version: 2.40.0+dfsg-5
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

it looks like upstream support for Xlib API adapters is officially
declared deprecated now. For details, see
https://gitlab.gnome.org/Archive/gdk-pixbuf-xlib . Since this affects
some application packages in Debian, please prepare documentation of
this issue, maybe there should be even a warning of some kind printed
through pkg-config or GCC warnings (although this is bad, of course,
would break -Werror using packages).

Best regards,
