[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#604793: Please package newer upstream release without hal dependency

Package: libexo-0.3-0
Version: 0.3.107-1
Severity: normal
User: pkg-utopia-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: halectomy


hal is being deprecated and we eventually want to get rid of it [1].

The latest upstream release 0.5.5 no longer has a dependency on hal
(afaics it uses GIO), so it would be nice to see the exo package
updated as soon as wheezy development opens.
