Subject: postgresql-9.1-postgis: postgis dependencies are very strong
Package: postgresql-9.1-postgis
Version: 1.5.3-2
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

Currently postgresql-9.1-postgis depends on postgis, and postgis
includes the gui application shp2pgsql-gui. This means that to install
the postgresql-9.1-postgis package I need to pull in gtk and other
dependencies for running a graphical application. For this reason I
think it would make sense to separate out shp2pgsql-gui from the
postgis package.

Another option, possibly in addition to the suggestion above, would be
to make postgres-9.1-postgis recommend the postgis package rather than
depend. However then you still can't use just the non-gui shp2pgsql
and pgsql2shp programs without installing all the dependencies the
-gui program requires.

Given that it's now well possible to install postgresql-9.3-postgis on a
server without pulling all of the GUI packages, and the fact that I
didn't get any feedback to my last message [0], I consider this bug
closed, now.
