Why is the one address *not* included on this mail the address of the
relevant bug in the BTS?

Apparently, no bug has been filed yet against glademm asking for the GNOME 1
dependencies to be dropped.  Would you please file this bug, given that
you're asking for NMUs to fix it?

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
