I guess you could make the argument that the primary use case for
packages could be to allow developers / users to write new

that leads to smaller build environments makes more sense. Although
as a
passing thought I wonder how much would fail / break, if we setup
obs to
ignore Recommends when setting up build roots. There are probably
evil autotools scripts out there doing autodetection that will
drop features just because a header is no longer present. So I
guess if
someone did want to test it they'd have to do it in a separate
with reproducible build checking enabled.

The -devel package still recommends libqt5-qttools and libqt5-
qttools-doc, but
the OBS already ignores Recommends for building.

Simotek says recommends are honoured, you say they're ignored ... I'm
confused. I confess my ignorance about how this is designed to work.
