Subject: libatk1.0-0: Please document reason for libatk1.0-data recommendation
Date: Sat, 9 Oct 2010 15:12:03 -0700
Package: libatk1.0-0
Version: 1.30.0-1
Severity: normal

libatk1.0-0 recommends libatk1.0-data, but does not document why it
needs libatk1.0-data, making it difficult to decide whether to install
it.  If libatk1.0-0 actually requires this data in order to function,
please change the recommends to a depends.  If not, please document the
reason for the recommendation in the description of libatk1.0-0, and
consider carefully whether to use "Recommends" or "Suggests", given the
number of packages which pull in libatk1.0-0.
