I cannot confirm that, it still trying to delete ubuntu-desktop. And I can see ubuntu-desktop still have gwibber in its dependency list.

Same as of today.

As of Oneiric release it is still set to 'depends'.

Is there a reason for this? Is this going to be fixed. Many people don't like gwibber, but like having ubuntu-desktop installed.

Considering this a bug here as well. How can a desktop environment depend on a social network client? Gwibber is one of the first things I delete on every installation because I just don't need it so why should I have it installed?
