Bug Description


activity-log-manager-control-center is a transitional package, so ubuntu-desktop shouldn't recommend it.

It should recommend activity-log-manager instead, which is the single dependency of activity-log-manager-control-center.

[Test Case]

* Install ubuntu-desktop, and verify that activity-log-manager-control-center is not installed with it.

* If it is already installed, you should be able to run 'apt-get purge activity-log-manager-control-center' without removing ubuntu-desktop.

[Regression Potential]

Negligible. There are no code changes. The fix only removes a dependency on a transitional package that doesn't provide any files.

Thank you for preparing the debdiff for Trusty.

I don't see any actual user impact described in the [Impact] section. How is an end user impacted by this bug on Trusty? Is an end user using Trusty actually impacted at all, or do things already work from users' perspectives?

If there is no impact, as this bugs describes it at the moment, then this bug is not suitable to be fixed in an SRU.

Unsubscribing ~ubuntu-sponsors for now, as an upload is inappropriate unless there is a user impact to Trusty users and it is described adequately in this bug. If in fact users are impacted, please explain how and resubscribe ~ubuntu-sponsors.
