Bug Description

Engrampa's current packaging includes a dependency and recommends that are unneeded. The attached debdiff removes these requirements and makes installing engrampa on a non-MATE desktop quite a bit lighter.

caja-common: Engrampa seems to run without issue without this package. If this is related to the Caja integration, it should be noted that this is a hard requirement for Caja.

mate-icon-theme: This package does not provide an icon for engrampa. Engrampa provides its own icon in engrampa-common.

The attachment "Packaging debdiff" seems to be a debdiff. The ubuntu-sponsors team has been subscribed to the bug report so that they can review and hopefully sponsor the debdiff. If the attachment isn't a patch, please remove the "patch" flag from the attachment, remove the "patch" tag, and if you are member of the ~ubuntu-sponsors, unsubscribe the team.

Might I recommend you to send this bug report (and the patch) to Debian instead?

The packaging is unchanged from Debian, and it would be a pity to differ just for this.

Unsubscribing ~ubuntu-sponsors as there's nothing left to sponsor.
