Package: libjtidy-java
Version: 7+svn20110807-4
Severity: normal


I'm using libreoffice and libjtidy-java has been installed as a indirect

$ LANG=C aptitude why libjtidy-java
i   libreoffice     Depends    liblucene2-java (>= 2.3.2)      
i A liblucene2-java Recommends libjtidy-java (>= 7+svn20070309)

libjtidy-java on the other hand recommends ant, which recommends
As a result ant will be installed on every system by default, which has
the libreoffice office suite installed. That looks wrong to me.

I'm not a Java developer using libjtidy-java, where having ant installed
would make sense. Please consider removing the ant recommends or
demoting it to suggests.
