Bug#687614: unblock: gdebi/0.8.6 (pre-approval)

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

Dear Release Team,
I'd like to upload a new gdebi version in unstable fixing some bugs I
recently triaged. They were reported on Launchpad, but most of them
affect Debian too. Here's a description of the changes introduced
since 0.8.5:

* Add xz-utils to gdebi Suggests field (fixing #685193)

* Handle ValueError exception to fix a crash with malformed packages

* Convert help options with unicode, fix crash displaying help in some locales

* Return dpkg error code instead of always return 0

* Fix translation string which caused a crash due to unmatched format string

* Port to new GIO API to fix a crash when accessing packages on GVFS mounts

* Fall-back on kdesu if kdesudo is not avaliable, this is a no-op for Debian,
  but makes gdebi-kde almost useless in Ubuntu, and I'd like to sync
package there

* Mark menu and labels as sensitive at startup, this causes a visual glitch

Other than those, I plan to include new translations in the package,
I'm currently waiting for Launchpad to finalize them.
I'm attaching a full debdiff (not including translations, at the
moment) of the changes I'd like to introduce.
