Given this enormous amount of dependencies, I really don’t think you
can complain about tracker. Additionally, gnome is just a meta
package, so you can safely choose to ignore it.
I have to agree, though, that gnome-documents and, more importantly,
nautilus depending upon tracker might be unfortunate, but then again:
Use something else if you don’t like tracker. To ease things further,
I bet that there is a way not to start tracker once it is installed.
1] Doesn’t really matter for me, though, as Nautilus > 3.0 is
unusable as a file/desktop manager in XFCE anyways, so I have to
stick to 2.30 :\
