Bug Description

Please backport gramps 5.0.1-1 (universe) from disco to cosmic.

Reason for the backport:
========================
To have the latest Gramps from the 5.0 upstream branch in the latest Ubuntu releases. Gramps 5.0 allows the use of an SQL database back end in addition to the traditional BSDDB.

Please note that the Gramps code is currently not relocatable, and thereofre it is not possible to distribute Gramps as a wheel (pip), flatpak, or snap.

Testing:
========
Mark off items in the checklist [X] as you test them, but please leave the checklist so that backporters can quickly evaluate the state of testing.

You can test-build the backport in your PPA with backportpackage:
$ backportpackage -u ppa:<lp username>/<ppa name> -s disco -d cosmic gramps

* cosmic:
[X] Package builds without modification
[X] gramps installs cleanly and runs

Reverse dependencies:
=====================
The following reverse-dependencies need to be tested against the new version of gramps. For reverse-build-dependencies (-Indep), please test that the package still builds against the new gramps. For reverse-dependencies, please test that the version of the package currently in the release still works with the new gramps installed. Reverse- Recommends, Suggests, and Enhances don't need to be tested, and are listed for completeness-sake.

None.

gramps
------
* edubuntu-desktop
[-] bionic (Reverse-Recommends) - Edubuntu is no longer an official Release Flavour, so I am not able to do a fresh install. In any case, this is just a metapackage, so it only installs gramps as well as lots of other packages.

Due to the missing dependencies in Trusty, I will only look after backports to Xenial now. Updated the description.

Unsubscribed the sponsors-team, as this bug needs to be updated to the latest Gramps (5.0.1) once it is packaged in Debian.

Although Xenial is still supported, I only plan to backport to the latest LTS (bionic) as the 5.0 series of Gramps is a significant step (compared to 4.1).
