Apologies for failing to follow-up on this after the initial response.

gnome-session 2.30.2-2 is now in testing, and no longer depends on
libdk-p-g; gdm3 is unblocked and waiting to age. As discussed on IRC, a
g-p-m 2.32 upload may be possible, depending on what the diff looks
I see that tracker 0.8.17 has been uploaded in the meantime. Were you
planning on requesting an unblock for that? After excluding changes to
the testsuite, translations, documentation, the autotools update and the
upower patch itself (as the actual changes therein are rather small), we
end up with
58 files changed, 757 insertions(+), 519 deletions(-)
which isn't /that/ big, but I didn't evaluate the changes in any detail.
