gnome-settings-daemon ( unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Iain Lane ]
  * Add a gnome-settings-daemon-common package.
    This contains the GSettings schemas and other arch-independent files.
    Packages can depend or build-depend on this if they want the schemas but
    not the actual running gnome-settings-daemon.
    In particular, we currently have a circular BD/D chain between mutter
    and g-s-d, and this can be mostly broken if mutter depends on the
    schemas (which it needs) rather than the daemon (which it doesn't).
    The references to gnome-settings-daemon-schemas are because Ubuntu
    provides this package under that name - this is to help with
    transitioning to gnome-settings-daemon-common.
  * debian/copyright:
    + Fix a broken copyright symbol
    + Add some more copyright holders, thanks grep

  [ Jeremy Bicha ]
  * debian/watch: Watch for stable releases
  * Drop obsolete dependency on nautilus-data

 This package contains GSettings schemas and other architecture-independent
 files for GNOME Settings Daemon. It is probably not interesting on its own for

 settings & don't themselves care if the settings daemon is actually running or
