Dear maintainer,

Your package is {build-}depending against gnome-vfs which is
deprecated for quite some times now and has been replaced by gvfs.

We are thinking about removing gnome-vfs for Buster if possible.

Could you please verify that this dependency is mandatory and if it's
not the case, could you please remove it?

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Kind regards,

Laurent Bigonville

Control: severity -1 serious

As announced [1], we do not intend to release Debian 10 "Buster" with
the old libgnome (and related) libraries. These libraries have been
deprecated and unmaintained for several years.

Your package depends and or build-depends on these libraries:

- gconf
- libgnomeui-0
- libgnome2-0
- libgnomevfs2-0

Please port your package to GTK3 and related maintained libraries.
Otherwise, please consider requesting that your package be removed from
Debian to help us complete this goal.
