>>> + Revision: 156474
>>> - new version 3.2.1
>>> - create own subpackage for gir .typelib
>>> - clean .spec a bit
>> For packages that have a pretty high impact, you probably should test it
>> before updating.
>> In this case 3.2.1 introduces a new dconf system which totally breaks if
>> you don't do some %post stuff to update the actual data file.
>> These instructions were clearly documented and if you'd tested the
>> package even minimally, you'd have seen the problem and no doubt found
>> this commit quickly (I saw the problem, did a temporary fix), logged in,
>> looked in git and found the commit immediately and then fixed the spec
>> So please in future, be considerate and test these packages before
>> pushing otherwise you'll get a lot of unhappy users who cannot log in!
> Sorry, my bad. I'll do more thorough testing next time. I did read

> Luckily you were awake and fixed package pretty fast. Thx for that.
Yeah I've asked Ray on IRC to add a bit more info about that change (it
should have been in NEWS IMO)...
Anyway, no biggie but gdm in particular is probably one to always test
