Bug#909522: emacs-goodies-el: questionable Depends/Recommends
There are several dependencies/recommendations in emacs-goodies-el which
look questionable to me.
- elpa-debian-el, elpa-dpkg-dev-el, elpa-devscripts:
Those packages are the successors of debian-el, dpkg-dev-el and
devscripts-el which used to be built from the emacs-goodies-el source
package. But the emacs-goodies-el _binary_ package in Stretch did not
depend on those, so why have these dependencies be introduced now?
- bash (>= 2.05a) | bash-static, dpkg (>= 1.15.4) | install-info:
This seems to be (harmless) cruft that should be removed.
- wget, perl-doc (both in Recommends):
Probably useless for the few lisp files still shipped in
emacs-goodies-el. I think perl-doc was recommended because perldoc.el
needed it, don't really know why wget was put into Recommends.
