Dear Maintainer,
Please upload 1.17.0 as soon as possible as once we hit 2017-01-05: we
will be hit by "Soft" freeze which means no new packages, no re-entry
as well. although normal migrations will be allowed.

    GTK+-3 gs-grab-x11: use correct GTK_VERSION_CHECK

raveit65 committed on Oct 2

While we have no idea when MATE will release 1.18.0 it would be nice
if for the whole stretch cycle we have minimum gtk+3 issues.

Just my 2 paise.
