Comment (by pierre.labastie):

 As far as I understand this thread, the patch should be for vte and not
 for glib... At least, pcre2 is not a ''required'' dependency of glib (i.e.
 the glib package can be built and run without it). It may be
 ''recommended'', though, but then, all the packages dependent on glib
 should be checked to see whether they can use pcre2. If not, then pcre has
 to be added as a dependency of that package.

 I'd suggest that for now on, we keep pcre as recommended for glib, and
 that packages needing really pcre2 be patched to have it as a dependency.
 Then, when a vast majority of packages can use pcre2, change our mind and
 recommend it for glib. Note that since there is a bundled version of pcre
 in glib, pcre is never a ''required'' dep, only ''recommended''.
