Package: virt-manager
Version: 1:1.4.0-5
Severity: wishlist


gconf2 has been deprecated for ages, and last time we (at Tails) tried
to get a patch in there, the answer we got was: "Thanks for sharing
the patch here but as gconf has been deprecated and unmaintained for
years I'm afraid that noone is around to review / merge. :-/"

On my system, virt-manager is one the very few packages that still
depend on gconf2. A cursory look at the source package seems to
indicate that this dependency is obsolete. Correct?
