Yeah; that's g-wrap, not gnucash. :)

Well, I'm not the g-wrap maintainer, and I don't know anything about
it. Nothing in bug #323462 mentions gnucash, and gnucash doesn't
depend on g-wrap anyway. So I can't for the life of me tell why the
g-wrap bug is blocking anything gnucash-related. Enlighten me?

This is the *gnucash* list. I'm asking about *gnucash* bugs, which
you said you had, or at least "problems".
You seem perhaps to be assuming that I already know what you're
talking about, but I clearly don't. Please enlighten me!
My question was not "are there problems with g-wrap in Debian". I
don't use g-wrap that I know of, and Debian gnucash doesn't either. I
don't even know why you brought it up. (Maybe it's obvious to some,
but not to me.)
I'm asking about *gnucash* problems.
I'm totally in the dark. Let's start again:
I'm thinking of packaging the gnome-2 branch of gnucash for Debian
experimental. Are there concerns or comments? Please don't assume
that I know anything about what gnome-2 problems there are. I'm
asking because I *don't* know.
