Bug#639871: transition: gssdp/gupnp

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: transition

The GUPnP stack has been released in a new major upstream versions and
the two base components (gssdp & gupnp) have bumped their sonames
"now that we're breaking API/ABI"[1][2].

The new stack has been uploaded to experimental, with gssdp and gupnp
currently stuck in NEW.

I've compared the dpkg-gensymbols generated symbols files and no symbols
are missing in the new library version. I see some changes related to
improving the situation for bindings, so I guess some data structures
might have changed that broke the ABI.

I don't see any reasons why reverse dependencies should have any problems
building against the new versions, but I've only tested a few random ones
(like gupnp-igd, bickley, ...).
One exception is rygel, which has (too) strict configure checks and will need
a sourceful upload, but I'll handle that being the maintainer for it as well.
