Although shutter is a popular package, it is unmaintained and seems unlikely to be included in the Buster release without major work to port it to gtk3. See https://bugs.debian.org/870418 I don't think it makes sense to include a deprecated unmaintained library in Debian with no reverse dependencies. The replacement is GObject Introspection and either gir1.2-appindicator3-0.1 or gir1.2-ayatanaappindicator3-0.1. That requires developers to use gtk3 instead of gtk2. Thanks, Jeremy Bicha
Please go ahead with the removal of libgtk2-appindicator-perl. The new Ayatana Indicators stack does not depend on this package and it really seems unmaintained.
Will you file the removal request once shutter is gone from the archive?
