Package: xfce4-mailwatch-plugin
Version: 1.1.0-4
Severity: normal
User: ametzler at downhill.at.eu.org
Usertags: deprecated-gnutls-2.12

This package is using some functions which are marked deprecated in
newer versions of GnuTLS (>=2.12.x). (They are not yet removed, though.)
These functions will be removed in future releases. GnuTLS 2.12.x is
already available in experimental.

Excerpt from buildlog:
mailwatch-net-conn.c:619:5: warning: 'gnutls_certificate_type_set_priority' is deprecated (declared at /usr/include/gnutls/compat.h:347)

The gnutls_*_set_priority family of functions has been marked deprecated
in 2.12.x. These functions have been superceded by 
gnutls_priority_set_direct(). The replacement function was added in gnutls
stable release 2.2.0 (released 2007-12-14).
