Source: chromium-browser
Version: 59.0.3071.104-1
Severity: important
User: pkg-gnome-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: oldlibs libgnome-keyring-removal


The libgnome-keyring library is deprecated and its usage is strongly
discouraged [1].  Applications should use libsecret [2] instead.

Your package chromium-browser declares a build-dependency on
libgnome-keyring-dev bug does not actually link against libgnome-keyring0.

Please check, if that Build-Depends is no longer needed and can be dropped or
if the application needs to be ported to libsecret.

On behalf of the Debian GNOME team,

Michael Biebl
