Bug#985119: debian-installer: shared-mime-info installed for no apparent reason

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-Cc: witold.baryluk@gmail.com

I just used the daily netinst for testing on arm64 in qemu.

I used the non-expert install (default).

In the selection of tasks, I only added "SSH server". No standard utils,
laptop tools or desktop, printer or web.

After the install i uninstalled i{american,british,spell} and wamerican,
emacsen-common and dictionary-common.

I also removed debconf-i18n.

Then as I was looking at other packages, and the disk usage, I noticed
libicudata.so.67 consuming a lot of space (~30MB in the .so file!)

Removing libicu67 also removes: libxml2 and shared-mime-info.
shared-mime-info depends on libicu67, but what dependss on
shared-mime-info that it was installed in the first place?

(As a side note, the debconf-i18n, dictionary-common, and other removed
packages doesn't depend on libicu67, so the only reason libicu67 was
installed is due to shared-mime-info. That grows the default install by about 10%!).

So I removed it anyway. Everything is fine, as these packages are optional.

So I am not sure why shared-mime-info was installed by debian-installer.

Sure it is useful if you have a web browser / client, or a desktop
installed, but I don't, and I didn't ask for it during install.

I am attaching the output of dpkg -l.
