[Pkg-telepathy-maintainers] Bug#675668: telepathy-glib: Please switch to vala 0.16

Source: telepathy-glib
Version: 0.18.1-2
Severity: normal
User: pkg-vala-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: vala-0.16-default


telepathy-glib currently has a build dependency on either valac-0.14
or libvala-0.14-dev.

For wheezy, the default valac version will be 0.16 and we recommend
that you switch telepathy-glib to valac-0.16.

That said, as the default was switched rather late to 0.16 during the
release cycle, we will ship both 0.14 and 0.16 for wheezy.

This means your package will remain buildable in any case, but if you
are planning an upload anyway, please consider switching to 0.16
while at it. In most cases a simple update of the build dependencies
is sufficient.


Michael, on behalf of the Debian Vala team.
