Source: xmlrpc-c, xfce4-screenshooter
Source-Version: xmlrpc-c/1.33.14-0.1
Source-Version: xfce4-screenshooter/1.8.1-2
Severity: serious
X-Debbugs-Cc: tjaalton at ubuntu.com, aurel32 at debian.org


it looks like the latest xmlrpc-c upload to unstable dropped a number of
binary packages (libxmlrpc-c++4, libxmlrpc-c++4-dev, libxmlrpc-c3-dev).
xfce4-screenshooter build-depends on libxmlrpc-c3-dev.

So, first: library transitions should be coordinated with reverse deps.
Especially when we're getting close to a freeze and there's not much
time left to fix things up.

Second is how to fix this.  One is to revert the xmlrpc-c change.
Another is to make xfce4-screenshooter buildable with current xmlrpc-c.
I'd appreciate having this all fixed within a week.  Please figure
something out :)
