Title:
  software-properties-common 0.96.24.24 bloats dependencies on server

Status in software-properties package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress
Status in software-properties source package in Bionic:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  As of version 0.96.24.24, software-properties-common declares
  dependencies on gir1.2-goa-1.0, gir1.2-snapd-1, and gir1.2-secret-1.
  This in turn pulls in a variety of transitive dependencies, including
  glib-networking, which was noticed because it is now part of the cloud
  image used for autopkgtests and breaks tests on some packages.

  We include software-properties-common in the server seed in order for
  the add-apt-repository command to work.  add-apt-repository definitely
  doesn't seem to be making use of any of these other gir modules.  I
  don't think this dependency is added at the right level; I think the
  dependency needs to be moved up to whichever package is actually
  making use of the canonical-livepatch information - which appears to
  be software-properties-gtk.
