Upstream (Yorba) has been aware of the breaking API changes in Gedit
3.12, but unfortunately lacks the manpower to fix it. There's a patch
submitted in September that laid dormant, and unfortunately changes
between Gedit 3.12 and 3.14 cause additional breakage.


Unfortunately I don't have the time to devote to fixing this, so I'm
pushing a final update for the Fedora 20 branch of gedit-valencia
(containing some test patches that can be applied to get the codebase to
compile on Fedora 21) but releasing ownership for F21 and master.

Any Vala / GObject / Gedit maven willing to take this package up?
