python gtkspell depends unneeded on GNOME

Bug #338152 reported by Benny on 2009-03-05
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-python-extras (Debian)

Bug Description

python gtkspell is a gtk module.
However, it is distributed in python-gnome2-extras. Hence, GTK applications that have spell checking depend on a lot of GNOME components without this needing to be the case.

For example: GRAMPS is a gtk app with spell checking.
Installing the python-gnome2-extra causes the install of:

The following extra packages will be installed:
  gnome-media gnome-media-common gstreamer0.10-alsa gstreamer0.10-plugins-base gstreamer0.10-plugins-good
  gstreamer0.10-x gvfs gvfs-backends libavc1394-0 libcamel1.2-14 libcdio-cdda0 libcdio-paranoia0 libcdio7
  libdv4 libebook1.2-9 libecal1.2-7 libedataserver1.2-11 libgda3-3 libgda3-bin libgda3-common libgdl-1-0
  libgdl-1-common libgnome-desktop-2-7 libgnome-media0 libgnomecups1.0-1 libgnomeprint2.2-0
  libgnomeprint2.2-data libgnomeprintui2.2-0 libgnomeprintui2.2-common libgtksourceview-common
  libgtksourceview1.0-0 libgvfscommon0 libiec61883-0 libmetacity0 libnautilus-burn4 liboil0.3
  libpanel-applet2-0 libshout3 libsoup2.4-1 libtotem-plparser12 libv4l-0 metacity-common

However, downloading the package, and doing:

sudo dpkg --force-depends -i python-gnome2-extras_2.19.1-0ubuntu11_amd64.deb

gives fully functional spell checking in GRAMPS.
