Bug#683278: desktop-base: drop annyoing dependency on dconf-gsettings-backend | gsettings-backend

Package: desktop-base
Version: 7.0.1
Severity: important


Come on guys,... it can't be possible, that with every base package
in the system one seems to need to install half of gnome.

Recently OpenJDK... now desktop-base.

This is used not only be true desktop-environments but e.g. also
by grub for the backgrounds.

So please find a more conservative solution in what you depend on.
