Bug Description

libgraphics-colornames-perl is pulled into main as a new "Recommends:" of libchart-perl.

It is "only" used to resolve color names in the format of "pallet:name -> ($r, $g, $b)" (e.g. "pallet:red -> (255, 0, 0)"). It's an optional runtime dependency.

I think it should be dropped to a Suggests, as this doesn't seem to be critical functionality that we'd want to support in "main".

OTOH, I started wondering why "libchart-perl" is in "main" in the first place. Ignoring the new libgraphics-colornames-perl dependency for now, it is a leave package itself:

$ reverse-depends src:libchart-perl
No reverse dependencies found

It is only pulled into main due to being listed in the "supported-development-desktop" seed: https://git.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-core-dev/ubuntu-seeds/+git/platform/commit/?id=97eeea5a6320e2fe93836814e8be0782903067dc

I could not find any proper MIR and rational for it being seeded. So I wonder if we should drop it from the seed? Being listed in a *-desktop seed maybe the Desktop team could answer if this is still needed, and if so, if they want to take over the ownership of this package from Foundations?

I have no objection and I don’t remember why this one was pulled in main, let’s wait for seb's answer on this as he might have a better memory than I do.

unsure why libchart-perl was added there but I think it's fine to remove it. If there was a reason someone will end up asking for it to be added back and then we can review the request

Thanks for your comments.
I'll mark this a MIR team NACK and will take care of demoting & removing libchart-perl from the seed instead.
