Unnecessary thai-fonts dependency
Status in phatch package in Ubuntu:
Status in phatch package in Debian:
Photo batch processor has a dependency of ttf-thai-tlwg which is a
meta-package that installs several thai fonts, and refuses to install
without them. English only users generally have no need for these
thai fonts and I can't find any reason why Phatch would absolutely
need them installed to be able to operate. I request that this
dependency be removed so that people who do not need them are not
forced to install them.
1)$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
2)$ apt-cache policy phatch
500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/universe amd64
3) Expected to happen:
Application installs without unneeded thai fonts.
4)What happened instead:
Applications installs with unneeded thai fonts and no way to remove them
afterwards without also removing Phatch.
Language fonts should be optional and based on the locale configuration of
the user, not on a package requirement.
This might be an upstream issue since it seems the problem was already
reported and cleared up by the package maintainers for Fedora:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=654867, but it doesn't
appear this dependency was removed upstream and so is still included
in Ubuntu builds.
It seems also that phatch-cli package has the same dependency, not
sure if I need to file that as a separate bug.
