GObject is an abstraction layer that allows programming with an object
paradigm that is compatible with many languages. It is a part of Glib,
the core library used to build GTK+ and GNOME.
This package contains the Python Cairo bindings for GObject. It is mostly
used by other bindings to map their GObjects to Python objects.

pygobject (3.18.2-2build1) xenial; urgency=medium
* No-change rebuild to drop python3.4 support.
2015-10-30 - Michael Biebl <>
pygobject (3.18.2-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix rules when deciding for which architecture the test-suite failure
should be non-fatal. Use filter instead of findstring, as findstring also
matches substrings (e.g. adding kfreebsd-amd64 did also make the amd64
test-suite non-fatal).
* Make the test-suite fatal for all architectures so we can more easily
detect failures.
* Make the test-suite non-fatal for the the -dbg builds. With python3.4-dbg
and python3.5-dbg the test-suite currently fails. We still run it to get
the result for all architectures.
2015-10-29 - Michael Biebl <>
pygobject (3.18.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
* Run test-suite on all architectures again.
* If the test-suite fails and we ignore the failure, log this accordingly.
