Comment 1 for bug 1696659

Olivier Tilloy (osomon) wrote :

* Merge from Debian unstable (LP: #1696659). Remaining changes:
  + don't package the gsettings backend since it's not meant to be distributed
  + debian/patches/02_xml-gettext-domain.patch: use gettext from schemas translations
  + debian/patches/05_nodisplay_autostart.patch: don't show in "Startup Applications"
  + debian/70gconfd_path-on-session, debian/gconf2-common.install: add additional gconf path depending on selected desktop session
  + debian/gconf-schemas:
    - convert to python3
    - encode and decode from UTF-8 to avoid postinst failing when schemas contain non ascii chars
    - shrink the generated %gconf-tree.xml, by filtering out locale specific defaults for uninstalled locales, leading tabs, empty short descriptions, and mtimes (which aren't interesting for system-wide defaults)
  + debian/update-gconf-defaults:
    - convert to python3
    - encode and decode from UTF-8 to avoid postinst failing when schemas contain non ascii chars
  + debian/gconf2.triggers, debian/gconf2.postinst, debian/gconf2.postrm: declare a new trigger on /usr/share/GConf/gsettings to watch when new gsettings convert files are installed
  + split gconf-service further into gconf-service and gconf-service-backend, one package being Multi-Arch: foreign and the other Multi-Arch: none, so that we correctly handle the fact that gconf2 needs backend modules of the same arch whereas other reverse-dependencies just need a working daemon
  + debian/patches/0001-Support-s-to-as-migrations-v2.patch: support 's' to 'as' migrations
  + debian/patches/call-dbus_g_thread_init.patch: Initialize dbus threads before doing anything. This fixes crashes in multithreaded applications that don't use libdbus directly.
  + debian/patches/pytwonisms.patch: fix gsettings-schema-convert pythonisms
  + debian/patches/reduce-polling.patch: call the cleanup routine every minute, instead of twice per minute, to reduce wakeups and therefore power usage
  + debian/rules:
    - updated for python3
    - call dh_python3 with --shebang=/usr/bin/python3
  + debian/{control,control.in}: updated for python3
