Bug#923693: unblock: gnome-books/3.31.90-3

Please unblock package gnome-books.

gnome-books has been split from gnome-documents. This allows for a
user to install just one of the apps if they want instead of being
forced to install or uninstall both In particular, AppStream clients
such as the GNOME Software app assume that there is only one app per
primary AppStream metadata file and the UI did not correctly handle
installing or uninstalling either of these apps. (It wouldn't indicate
that install/uninstall actions affect both apps.)

I don't think a source debdiff will be very helpful here since many of
the changes are renaming gnome-documents to gnome-books and removing
code that isn't needed for the gnome-books app. Let me know if you
really want the source debdiff here.

This was delayed because we had to update debian/copyright to fix a RC
bug that was added by FTP Masters when this NEW source package was
accepted into Debian. gnome-books was uploaded before the soft freeze.

There will be one more upload (3.32.0) that we will want for Buster
since 3.31.90 is a pre-release. 3.32.0 is expected in about 9 days.

Thanks,

I'll make an exception as this is already in buster under a different name, and
as this is necessary to finish the gjs / mozjs transition.
