In March, Josselin made gnome depend on gnome-dbg and
gnome-desktop-environment recommend gnome-dbg in order to receive
meaningful backtraces from people running unstable or testing -- this
would have been reverted before the release.
Now, in SVN, gnome-desktop-environment only suggests gnome-dbg and
gnome only recommends it. I suppose gnome won't recommend it in the
final stable release.
