(this is the third attempt to send this to the list - apologies to the
maintainer. The email is two weeks old, but still relevant)
I'm running rawhide and recently bumped into a bug that required me to
update gtk3 to latest available (3.3.6-1), following that eog broke so
I decided to update that (from 3.3.2 to 3.3.3) and lo and behold that
wouldn't compile because intltool-merge was missing --no-translations
which only appears in the 0.50.0 tarball.
So far so good, nothing to write to the list about. But there is a
patch inside the current intltool, 0.41.1-2, schema-merge.patch, that
has not gotten upstream which adds a --gettext-package flag for fixing
translation bloat, see bz#568845. According to the last comment on that
bz it should no longer be a problem because of the move from gconf to
gsettings. But that leaves any package currently relying on the flag
I discussed this with Matthias Clasen and he suggested that we:
1. push the updated intltool package (not done yet since I'm waiting
for permissions, but soon)
2. push the updated eog package that relies on it
3. write to the list giving a heads up that the flag will be missing
Hope this is the right thing to do, if it is totally wrong please
advise. I could go combing through all packages, but haven't even begun
to figure out how to do that sanely.
I would like to announce that I will be orphaning, and possibly
retiring, telepathy-sunshine. Due to  I was unable to use it for
months and as such am probably not the best maintainer.
As explained by the upstream, the development is on hold and the whole
plugin considered for dropping for the following reasons:
* lack of support from telepathy team as well as
* telepathy-python upstream being dead
* lack of time for a C rewrite
In case someone decides to pick up the maintenance, keep in mind that
coding the fixes themselves might be necessary.
To make things worse, -haze is useless with gadu-gadu network due to
, and thus pidgin, kadu or other clients need to be used with that
