Fio is a performance testing tool for disk subsystems. One of its features is it can produce plots viewable via gnuplot so there is a recommends gnuplot in the specfile.
I've just had a user raise the concern that on a server gnuplot brings in a ton of desktop related packages. Further he argues he would run fio on the server, but gnuplot on his desktop.
Hi Why not create a sub package that has a requires on gnuplot, basically just metadata to pull in if the user wants to add it?
That would be like a tool that produces plain text offering a subpackage that requires xmore. Requirements are for the tool to be able to run, not for the user to be able to make use of the result. The mimehandler incantation is for the latter, and that usually brings a list of packages to choose from.
