It's my understanding that gnome-vfs is deprecated upstream and is going
away.  Most GNOME components no longer use it or include support for it.
Do you really want to package a binding for unsupported software?

Indeed.  GVFS has replaced GnomeVFS in the GNOME platform.

Hi Brian.

Excerpts from brian m. carlson's message of Qua Mai 26 14:53:48 -0300 2010:

This is a good point.  But I'm not going to introduce this package in Debian.
The new version of gtk2hs split the source package in a lot of source packages,
so I'm filling ITPs to new source packages, but the binary packages are the
same.  Therefore, I'm only updating the version of the binary package.

Greetings.

Doesn't seem necessary to file ITP bugs in such a case...
