why are some lang packages now required installs?
lately *gtk3-lang* seems to be reinstalled after I
fwiw: I routinely remove *-lang* packages as I have no
benefit there. and
the *get3-lang* package is over-riding "--no-recommends".
maybe there are others but gtk3-lang is one I notice.
There are others. I force removed *-lang and then ran zypper al *-lang on each
installation. That causes a bunch of non-broken "broken" packages that must be
responded to by "breaking" various updates that need no -lang package on every
zypper dup forced by a zypper up that leaves the unbroken "broken" packages at
their old versions. Similarly, zypper occasionally won't install some new package
without "breaking" it.
does this need a bug report?
IMO it does. IIRC, someone in a thread in one of the lists, or in a forum, or on
IRC, or in another bug, told me each -lang package itself is not the problem, but
a packaging problem of the bug that triggers it. I filed one similar in concept
but it got dup'd to another bug I filed in a similar vein.
