Source: entangle
Version: 2.0-1
Severity: normal
User: pkg-utopia-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: dbus-glib-deprecation
Control: block 895291 by -1

dbus-glib is a deprecated D-Bus library with some significant design
flaws, and is essentially unmaintained. As announced in [0], I would
like to minimize its use, and eventually remove it from Debian.

entangle Build-Depends on libdbus-glib-1-dev, but I couldn't find any
sign of it actually *using* dbus-glib. If this analysis is correct,
please remove the Build-Depends on libdbus-glib-1-dev.

If this package has other uses of dbus-glib that I have missed, please
see [0] for how to proceed.
