libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0 is only suggests gnome-app-install.
I've found the actual chain:
$ aptitude why banshee synaptic
p banshee Recommends brasero
p brasero Recommends gnome-mount
p gnome-mount Depends libeel2-2.20
p libeel2-2.20 Recommends synaptic
May I file a bug to libeel2-2.20? Or is this chain acceptable? And, for possible future
similar issues, is debian-devel mailing list right place to discuss them in?
