Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org at packages.debian.org
Usertags: transition

Please allow us to make ibus transition 1.4 to 1.5 in terms of upstream
API version.
                     Debian                   Upstream API
    stable           1.4.1-9                  ibus 1.4
    s-p-u            1.4.1-9+deb7u1           ibus 1.4
    testing/unstable 1.5.1.is.1.4.2-3 ** from ibus 1.4
    exp              1.5.3-4          ** to   ibus 1.5

Even after initial release of ibus 1.5 and its integration to the GNOME3
during wheezy development period, we kept ibus 1.4 in Debian testing and
released wheezy with it for stability.

Now that ibus integration of GNOME 3.8 is in very good shape and many
issues has been resolved, we would like to introduce ibus 1.5 to Debian
and let the next GNOME 3.8 (gnome-settings-daemon, gnome-control-center)
to compile without --disable-ibus flag.  This should solve many GNOME
international keyboard issues.

Two types of packages are affected by this transition request.
Library version change and some python binding strategy changes.

 * Source packages build with libibus-1.0-dev

   --> binnmu fix them all.
    $ ben query ".build-depends ~ /libibus-1.0-dev/" Sources 2>/dev/null |egrep -e '^Package:'
    Package: ibus-array
    Package: ibus-chewing
    Package: ibus-client-clutter
    Package: ibus-hangul
    Package: ibus-input-pad
    Package: ibus-libthai
    Package: ibus-m17n
    Package: ibus-pinyin
    Package: ibus-qt
    Package: ibus-rime
    Package: ibus-skk
    Package: ibus-sunpinyin
    Package: ibus-table
    Package: ibus-unikey
    Package: ibus-xkbc
    Package: kdeplasma-addons
    Package: mlterm
    (Maintainers are alerted.  Most of them are pkg-ime team maintained.)

 * Binary packages relying on the old python bindings via ibus:
   --> declare dependency directly to python-ibus fixes them.
     * ibus-el, ibus-googlepinyin: single line change source upload I will make
   --> package newer upstream using new GObject introspection
     * ibus-anthy: already in exp by me.

I answered reportbug question to produce below.

Ben file:

title = "ibus";
is_affected = .depends ~ "libibus-1.0-0" | .depends ~ "libibus-1.0-5";
is_good = .depends ~ "libibus-1.0-5";
is_bad = .depends ~ "libibus-1.0-0";
