Is this symptom still reproducible in 8.10 RC or later?

Sure it is. The package is still lacking a proper dependency on imagemagick, that it needs to work correctly.

Maybe imagemagick is being pulled in a default install by another dependency, but this is not a reason to not make libgsf-bin explicitly depend on it.

It should not only "recommend", it should "depend on" imagemagick : libgsf-bin doesn't work at all if imagemagick is not installed… Could you change the title (s/recommend/depend on/).

It's not a "wish", it's a bug.

summary: - Should recommend installing imagemagick
+ Should depend on imagemagick
