I have libchamplain-gtk-0.12.3 on Fedora 17, I think this is the
latest. Not sure where I got the version 1.3.2 from, ah, that's actually
for clutter-gtk but in F17 you get 1.2.0 with the later version for F18
and F19. clutter-gtk010 is at 0.11.4 

So, I suppose that Debian unstable means exactly what it says, stable
Debian was always a long way behind the bleeding edge.

Aaargh! Just noticed that actually the installed plugin package
actually contains only a readme that says not installed because CM is
built using GTK+ 2.

I'll shut up now, except...

Holger, can you provide a snapshot of the gdata plugin CVS?
