As you may or may not have noticed, I uploaded a new webkit release to
unstable, which is now waiting in NEW for ftp-master love.

What is NEW is this release, and this is why I'm contacting reverse
dependencies maintainers, is two-fold:
- first, the WebKit Gdk port finally changed name upstream, and became
  the WebKit Gtk port. This means the package names changed, and you now
  need to build depend on libwebkitgtk-dev. It also means the
  GdkLauncher, used for testing, became GtkLauncher.
- second, the API for embedding WebKit Gtk changed. This means you can't
  just change the build dependencies and rebuild you packages. For
  Epiphany, Alp Toker said he updated it, so you might just need to
  cherry pick in upstream SVN. For the others, take a look at [1], or
  the diff for commit 3d3c98f3c736ac774095f3a6739a2cd1dce3e432.
  Basically, it should just be a matter of s/\(webkit_\)gtk_/\1/i and

The latter is also the reason why there is no transition package.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
