I put thought into it. As I pointed out in my other mail, it seems like
you're the one who didn't think things through before sending out

A gimp-devel package *must* have a dependency that either directly or
indirectly pulls in glib-devel. If it doesn't, the package's dependency
specification is broken.

SuSE has a history of being shoddy in this regard, other examples that
have affected gimp are glib-devel not requiring pkg-config, aalib being
linked against slang but not requiring slang-devel, and a few more I
can't recall off the top of my head right now.

Please next time actually read and comprehend what's going on in the
thread instead of sending out poorly researched knee-jerk defenses of
your pet Linux distro.
