packagekit (1.1.12-5ubuntu2) eoan; urgency=medium

from stealing the dpkg lock in race conditions where apt(cc) has to
release the lock in order to run dpkg.

packagekit (1.1.12-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Do not ship the GTK+2 plugin (Closes: #922118)

enable the GTK plugin build.

[ Andrew Hayzen ]
