Fails to build due to a version mismatch with glib2 (which has been updated
to 2.70.2):

==> Missing dependencies:
error: target not found: glib2=2.70.1

When I change to glib2 2.70.2 with:


Then I get:

gobject-introspection/giscanner/ ERROR: File doctemplates does not exist.

Setting -D gtk_doc=false didn't help, commenting out the section:

#install_subdir('doctemplates', install_dir: giscannerdir)
# '@INPUT@', '@OUTPUT@'])

gobject-introspection/tests/scanner/ ERROR: Unknown variable "doc_templates".

#depends: [doc_templates],

This seems to work, but feels extremly hacky.

I finally gave up on python and regression tests:

FAILED: tests/scanner/Regress-1.0-Gjs
FAILED: tests/scanner/Regress-1.0-Python

This package blocks updates for hwids (required by libosinfo/tracker/tracker3) downstream. :-)
This problem arises because we have to rebuild more packages than expected..

Additional info:
* package version(s): 1.70.0-4
This task depends upon
