In Ubuntu, I've done some work to update gtksourceview to the GTK+ 3.0 branch.
Specifically, this involved creating a new source package and associated

There are two things I did that I wanted to make sure were coordinated with
Debian, so please let me know ASAP if you are OK with and plan to make the
same changes as I've made:

1) Add a new gir binary package with the name gir1.0-gtksource-3.0.  I used
the name gtksource instead of gtksourceview because that is the namespace
upstream gave the gir file.  I'm not sure why, but there you go.

2) I renamed all the existing binary packages to include a dash before the
3.0.  For example, the library package went from libgtksourceview2.0-0 to
libgtksourceview-3.0-0.  The soname is libgtksourceview-3.0.so.0, so I
believe my change makes the names "more correct".  I *really* don't want a
delta with Debian here, so I want to make sure that you all think the same.

I know you may not apply this patch/update to gtksourceview3 yet given your
release schedule, but I'm just looking for an ACK here. 

My debdiff from 2.10.4 to 2.91.1 is attached.
