Bug Description

[Test Case]

1. Start python3
2. from gi.repository import Dee
   -> Make sure that SharedModel has the append() function available

[Regression Potential]

No obvious regression potential, in worst case some problems with python 2 introspection.

Original description:

A Unity scope written in Python 3 on 12.04 gets the following error message when attempting to search

'SharedModel' object has no attribute 'append'

The same code works fine on 12.10. Similar code worked fine in 12.04 using Python 2 (before I ported it to Python 3). The code portions in question are the same between the Python 2 and Python 3 versions.

The scope I'm working on is here

Installing both git1.2-dee-1.0 and libdee-1.0-4 from 12.10 resolves the issue. Installing just libdee-1.0-4 from 12.10 didn't resolve the issue, although I didn't test just installing the other package.

Confirmed that a fully updated 12.04 install with the following package versions has this issue.

libdee-1.0-4 1.0.10-0ubuntu1
gir1.2-dee-1.0 1.0.10-0ubuntu1

and that installing the following package versions from 12.10 resolves the issue. gir1.2-dee-1.0 cannot be upgraded unless libdee-1.0-4 is upgraded first.

libdee-1.0-4 1.0.14-0ubuntu1
gir1.2-dee-1.0 1.0.14-0ubuntu1

So, indeed the precise dee packages do not have the fix for this issue - but I'll be working on back-porting it to the precise packaging and sending it to the SRU team for release. Please be patient!

Seems to be fixed after update, append() appeared after updating the dee from precise-proposed.
