Dependency on c shell necessary?

Bug Description

Binary package hint: emboss

The emboss package (all Ubuntu versions available I believe) has csh listed as a dependency. In the changelog notes, it mentions this was added so tests can be run.

This is a very minor issue, but it does seem a little extreme to require someone to install c-shell just for some tests. Can I put in a request that removing this dependency from the emboss packages be considered?

thank you,

Dear Bela,

this is a very good point. Since the emboss binary package does not contain C shell scripts, this dependency is not needed. I will remove in the next package update (to upstream version 6.2.0), which I hope to do soon.

Have a nice day,
