Package: libgstreamer-plugins-bad1.0-0
Version: 1.14.0-1
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

Dear Maintainer,

After doing an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade on Debian Sid, the libgstreamer-plugins-bad1.0-0 version was changed to 1.14.0-1. However, there are dependencies on this package (including gnome-shell and gnome-session) that rely on version (< 1.13). gnome-session depends on gnome-shell which depends on mutter which depends on zenity which depends on libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37 which depends with the package with the version issue, libgstreamer-plugins-bad1.0-0. Since this breaks a bunch of dependencies, Debian Sid isn't able to start with gnome running and we are unable to reinstall gnome packages.
