Bug Description

ubuntu-desktop depends on gnome-spell, yet no app is using it.

The only former user was evolution, but since 2.23.1 it switched to libgtkhtml-editor which provides spelling via libenchant, and does not use gnome-spell at all.

So dependency should be removed from ubuntu-desktop, and suggests removed from evolution.

This bug was fixed in the package evolution - 2.24.0-0ubuntu3

evolution (2.24.0-0ubuntu3) intrepid; urgency=low

  * debian/control:
    - don't suggest gnome-spell it's not used in the current version
      (lp: #279158)
    - update the evolution-data-server requirement to the current version
  * debian/patches/90_update_svn_version.patch:
    - update the code to the current svn version so it gets testing before
      the next tarball
