Bug Description

We need to update the patch we ship adding the GIO extension point for adding a hook called when GAppInfos are launched. See GNOME bugzilla https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=606960.

Since technically this breaks the ABI and API of GLib we need to synchronize this with updating BAMF and Wncksync. Jason has volunteered to do that.

The plan is to use this bug as a tracker-bug collecting both the GIO patch and the relevant branches that Jason create, as well as the affected Ubuntu packages.

The bamf api update has been merged. I am holding back wncksync because I don't really know how it's deployed everywhere and if it could inadvertedly break some deployments...
