Source: wader
Version: 0.5.13-1
Severity: important
User: pkg-gnome-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: oldlibs python-gnome2 gnome-python


wader depends on python-gnome2 or python-gconf, or has a
build-dependency on one those packages. Those are built from
gnome-python which is long deprecated and going to be removed from
the archive. wader should be ported away from it.

The way forward is to port your app to use GObject Introspection

For more information on GObject Introspection see [1] and [2].

Please try to do this before the Stretch release as we're going to
try to remove gnome-python this cycle.

If you have any question don't hesitate to ask.
