Version: 1.8.0+dfsg1-3
Severity: normal
User: pkg-utopia-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: udisks1-deprecation


this package currently depends on/recommends udisks 1. That has been
deprecated for a while now, in favor of udisks 2. Please port the
package to udisks 2 and drop code that uses the old
hal/devicekit-disks/udisks 1 bits.

Please note that udisks2 also has a library interface (libudisks2-0)
which is easier to use than raw D-BUS calls. It is also introspectable
(gir1.2-udisks-2.0) so you can use it from languages like Python.
However, for this C# case it's probably better to stick with raw D-BUS
calls as AFAIK there is no current/maintained gobject-introspection
support for Mono.

The API is documented at http://udisks.freedesktop.org/docs/latest/ .
