Bug Description

ubuntustudio-meta package uses "depends:" instead of "recommends:". This causes various unwanted side effects, the worst of them is that if the user uninstalls an app from the seed, they lose the metapackage as well, and on an autoremove they lose all the other packages from the seed.

Hi Sergey,

As we have been discussing we will look at this for the pangolin 12.04. Specifically, we should address it in the "live-dvd" blueprint:
