Package: libthunar-vfs-1-2
Version: 1.0.2-1
Severity: important
User: pkg-utopia-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: halectomy


HAL has been deprecated and declared dead upstream so we want to
get rid of it eventually in Debian [1].

Please consider disabling HAL support in thunar or porting it to
newer interfaces like upower, udisks or libudev.

The latest Xfce 4.8 release seems to have the necessary bits already so
simply getting them into Debian might be sufficient.
