Bug#955828: cinnamon-control-center: Build-Depends on deprecated dbus-glib, but doesn't need to
dbus-glib is a deprecated D-Bus library with some significant design
flaws, and is essentially unmaintained. As announced in , I would
like to minimize its use, and eventually remove it from Debian.
cinnamon-control-center Build-Depends on libdbus-glib-1-dev, and has a

so this dependency and check can probably be dropped without any real
If cinnamon-control-center has other uses of dbus-glib that I have missed,
please see  for how to proceed.
