Hello 'community' package maintainers,
libgda 5.2.10 is in the 'community' repository, and the latest version is 6.0.0. Its build system was changed to Meson along with some new features added and other deprecated disabled, besides being a soname bump. So, I understand how demotivational it is for the package maintainer.
Personally, I'm a GNOME's Gtranslator user and it can not be updated to its 42.0 release without libgda6. I tried patching gtranslator's source to use libgda5 but then I faced a libsoup2-libsoup3 conflict due to its dependencies ("libsoup3 symbols detected. Using libsoup2 and libsoup3 in the same process is not supported."). Because of that, libgda6 is the way to go.
So this email is to suggest a 'libgda6' PKGBUILD that was prepared and made available in the unofficial repository FCGU — notice the different pkgname to avoid replacing libgda which could cause dependency breaks.
Please kindly consider making this release available.
Thanks in advance.
Best regards, Rafael
