Motivation for this change

The libhandy update broke a few packages, this puts them back on _0.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits

Not an official release yet, but this is needed for gnome 3.38.
Use xmllint in docs generation. Remove an old patch. Remove an old
postPatch workaround.
* updateScript
* use rust vendor (there's actually no isuse with doing that)
* add libhandy
* format

The dropped patch is now included in the upstream release.
worldofpeace and others added 11 commits Oct 2, 2020
Add appstream-glib to native build inputs, for appstream-util. Add patch
for inkscape 1.0 CLI arguments. Silence an inkscape warning regarding
profile directory.
Add libXres to buildInputs.
Add patch to set gnome panel's modules dir, during configurePhase.
Use tracker-2 and libhandy_0. Add appstream-glib for appstream-util.
Meld’s post install script requires gtk-update-icon-cache program on PATH.
Because Meld is a Python app, it uses strictDeps so we need to explicitly
add the program to nativeBuildInputs.

For some reason, Linux version has the program available, though,
which hides the missing dependency. Perhaps it is propagated by something
but I do not know how to determine it.
Switch to meson & ninja. Add new deps and remove libxlm2 and libtool
from native. Update patches. Unset enableParallelBuilding since with
meson it's the default.
This also requires explicitly specifying path to dbus-daemon otherwise
it can't be found and GDM fails to start.

For seahorse I see in the dynamic header

 0x0000000000000001 (NEEDED)             Shared library: []

And looking at I don't see a requirement for libhandy-1 or a PR anywhere.
So what I believe is happening is gobject-introspection is needed for the subproject.
The actual error is from the subproject as well

subprojects/libhandy/src/ ERROR: Dependency "gobject-introspection-1.0" not found, tried pkgconfig

Could you drop that particular commit?

Also, I don't think we should do treewide for the commit (there's only 8 files changed, not 100+). If you could individually commit them that would be better 👍

I merged this manually to gnome-3.38. I think the branch issue was that I force pushed to the gnome-3.38 branch (overwrite) and this was based off the old version. I guess a git rebase --onto could've fixed that. Anyways, thanks for fixing this 👍 This saves a lot of time for us
