Package: empathy
Version: 3.12.10-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Hi, I upgraded to gnome 3.16 from sid and latest empathy. It seems that incoming voip calls no longer show any kind of popup
allowing me to answer the call, whereas they used to in gnome 3.14.

It appears that gnome 3.16 has deferred the notification to empathy, whereas it used to be handled through a telepathy
handler in gnome-shell. Empathy is making the ringing tone when the call arrives, so it's obviously reached empathy, but the dialog
allowing me to answer the call that is obviously supposed to show as well, is definitely not showing.

I'm not sure if it's an upstream bug or not, but it's very frustrating - I've been using empathy telephony handling for a while
and I have to use something else temporarily.
