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.

emacs-goodies-el (42.0) experimental; urgency=medium
[ Nicholas D Steeves ]
* debian/control: Drop dependencies that are no longer necessary,
or that were not part of the emacs-goodies-el binary package
in stretch (Closes: #909522):
- Drop Depends on "bash | bash-static", and "dpkg | install-info",
because "bash | bash-static" was a dependency of devscripts, and the
"dpkg | install-info" should not be necessary with Standards-Version
3.9.5 and compat 9. Devscripts-el was elpafied for emacs-goodies-el
40.0 and is no longer part of emacs-goodies-el.
- Drop Recommends wget and perl-doc. Wget was a dependency of
debbugs-el and dpkg-dev-el. Debbugs-el was removed in 26.1-1, and
dpkg-dev-el was elpafied for emacs-goodies-el 37.0. Perl-doc was a
dependency of perldoc.el, which was removed in 40.0.
- Drop dependencies on elpa-debian-el, elpa-dpkg-dev-el, and
elpa-devscripts that were not present before 38.0.
[ David Bremner ]
* Complete transformation to metapackage (Closes: #907840, #899221)
* Drop ff-paths.el (Closes: #773620)
* Drop projects.el (Closes: #672304, #353766, #354106)
* Bump standards version to 4.2.1. No changes seem to be needed.
