Yet, this package lacks python-ibus as dependency ... bug :-)

FYI: I made QC upload of the current package but I do not use Chinese
     as you might have guessed.

Fix as other packages did ;-)  You see in ibus-pinyin setup/main.py
from gi.repository import IBus

Basically update code to use this new interface.


Depends: python-gi

You should see many other examples:
 ibus-el     https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=721736

I never ported to introspection but see pages like:

(Though ibus-array has not been fixed.)

Unless I get new updated source in timely manner (with changes focused
on fixing this bug), these packages will be removed from the next
release.  Usually if upstream is active, they updated this.

Most of patches to support gi was taken from upstream.

Maybe, patching source that way is one option.  But I am afraid I may
get negative response.  I usually stick to the upstream.
