  glib2.0 (2.56.4-0ubuntu0.18.04.5) bionic; urgency=medium

  [ Gunnar Hjalmarsson ]
  * d/p/gcredentialsprivate-Document-the-various-private-macros.patch,
    - Ensure libdbus clients can authenticate with a GDBusServer like
      the one in ibus. The patches cherry picked from 2.62.2-2 in focal
      in order to allow the ibus fix of CVE-2019-14822 to be re-enabled
      without breaking ibus for Qt applications (LP: #1844853).

  [ Iain Lane ]
  * d/p/Add-a-test-for-GDBusServer-authentication.patch: Additionally backport
    this commit to add a test for the above fixes.
    + BD on libdbus-1-dev so that the above test gets run properly.
