Bug#822612: python3-pyatspi: depends on libatk-adaptor and libgail-common
I'm trying to get rid of gtk 2 on my system, and one of the few remaining
rdeps is python3-pyatspi (and python-pyatspi). These pull libatk-bridge and
libgail-common, which depend on libgail18, which depends on libgtk2.0-0.
IIUC this was added so that GTK+ 2 apps had a11y by default, as they need
the gtk2 gail module to be introspectable. OTOH gtk 3 is accessibly by
Do you think demoting libgail-common and libatk-adaptor to Recommends would
be fine at this stage, so that they are installed by default but can be
removed if desired (e.g. if/when there are no gtk2 apps installed)?
Or would you rather wait until gtk 2 is less widespread?
