[SRU] gconf FTBFS in Bionic

Bug Description


Two issues make gconf FTBFS in Bionic:

- outdated gtk-doc.make which fails with gtk-doc-tools >= 1.26
- missing dh-python in B-D

The debdiff attached below fixes these issues and makes gconf build properly.

[Test Case]

Just install the needed build dependencies and try to build gconf. It will fail with an error from gtk-doc.make. Second issue: if gtk-doc.make is patched, the build will fail if dh-python isn't installed.

[Regression Potential]

None, you can't break it more than FTBFS :)

[Other Info]

Fixes are backported from Cosmic.

Before this is sponsored, I would like to see Brian's comment on the other bug addressed; does this need to go to Eoan, any other releases, or Debian?

Thanks, and please resubscribe sponsors when this is answered.
