Description Clément DAVID 2008-01-14 11:37:24 EST
Description of problem:
The vala-1.0.vapi file contains references to the Gee namespace but the libgee
is not in the repository. 

libgee [http://freshmeat.net/projects/libgee]
Gee is a library of collection classes, written in Vala. The classes should all
be familiar to users of libraries such as Java's Foundation Classes. Gee
consists of a set of interfaces and various types that implement these in
different ways. Although Gee is not a part of Vala as such, it is used
internally in Vala, and is sufficiently closely related that Vala supports
certain special syntax for Gee related operations.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Try to compile the attached file with :
'/usr/bin/valac --pkg vala-1.0 TestVala.vala'
Actual results:

Expected results:
 compile ;)

Comment 2 Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-01-14 12:29:18 EST
Ugh, sounds bad that something that is /not/ part of Vala proper is referenced
in the standard namespace (from the release page it looks like Vala should still
be using its internal copy of libgee). Will check with upstream, thanks.

I've added the gee-1.0.vapi file to the packaging; this bug entry will be
automatically updated once the test packages hit updates-testing and closed when
it hits the updates repository.

Test case now works, but you need to manually add --pkg gee-1.0 as well.

Decided to push this straight to the stable 'updates' repository. Meanwhile, you
can rate the package here:
