Bug Description

Several webkit1 reverse-dependencies have been removed from Debian Testing ('buster').

While I'd like to see them removed from unstable too (or ported away from webkit1), that will take quite a while longer.

Removed from testing
====================
bibledit-gtk (note that the source package bibledit is ok and it ships the same package names)
blam
cyclograph
gnucash
gphpedit
luakit
monodevelop
monodevelop-database
thawab
xiphos (there's a new upstream unpackaged version but I guess it's still not ready for webkit2)
xtrkcad
webkitgtk-sharp3
webkit-image
zekr

Requested removal from unstable
==============================
blam https://bugs.debian.org/877751
webkit-sharp https://bugs.debian.org/877786

Never in Debian
===============
lightdm-webkit-greeter
Mike Gabriel from Debian MATE has begun preparing web-greeter (the renamed version of lightdm-webkit-greeter)

Other Info
==========
I think the most difficult one on this list for some people is gnucash. Fedora 27 (due ~November) is actually bundling webkit1 inside the gnucash packaging. There will be a beta version of gnucash ported to gtk3 available later this year. Hard to say whether it's better to offer a beta or just remove it entirely.

monodevelop may be useful to some people but I don't think Mono ever got around to releasing a stable gtk3 version of Mono.

Arch Linux has already completely removed webkit1.
