[Pkg-shotwell-maint] Bug#697204: GExiv2: New version in experimental provides GObject introspection

Version 0.5.0 has been uploaded to experimental, that version
introduces a new binary package gir1.2-gexiv2-0.4 that provides
GObject introspection data for the gexiv2 library. I've installed it
from experimental, and "from gi.repository import GExiv2" works fine.
Please confirm that it works for you as well.

Steps to configure experimental and install:
Add this line to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
    deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main

Update your sources and execute this:
    sudo aptitude -t experimental install gir1.2-gexiv2-0.4

Question to the maintainers: what is the reason for 0.5.0 not to be
uploaded to unstable? I believe the freeze for the new release only
affects testing, but you should still be allowed to upload to
unstable, right?
