Source: mate-netbook
Version: 1.14.0-1
Severity: important
User: pkg-gnome-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: oldlibs libunique3-removal


your package mate-netbook declares a build-dependency on
libunique-3.0-dev or has a dependency on libunique-3.0-0.

The libunique3 library is in maintenance mode and its usage is strongly
discouraged [1].  Our plan is to remove libunique3 from the archive so
it is not released with stretch.

Applications should use the GtkApplication class provided by GTK+ 3.0.
Under [2] you will find a porting guide for migrating from using Unique
to GApplication or GtkApplication.

On behalf of the Debian GNOME team,

Michael Biebl
