Bug Description

Because dleyna-server is in universe, Ubuntu's gnome-online-accounts cannot recommend it like the Debian package does. I have pushed a hack to Debian to allow us to sync gnome-online-accounts and for the dependencies to be handled correctly.

I am filing this as an informational bug since this issue will now be less visible than if there was a persistent diff with Debian.

I think this will make the Media Server option in Settings > Online Accounts not work, but I don't have a Media Server here to test right now. This issue affects Ubuntu 17.10 and newer.

Ideally, the Media Server account type should be hidden if it doesn't work, or modified to allow a user to easily install dleyna-server via PackageKit.

Or we could try to get dleyna-server in to Ubuntu main.
