Description

This is mainly interesting for textbased installs / minimal installs, where the installation of X is trying to be avoided..

We had two examples in the past:

  • emacs requires libgio which in turn depends on the existence of dbus-launch. dbus-launch was provided only by dbus-1-x11 and required X11 libs. As a result, installing emacs without X-libs was not possible
  • vim has just been reported to be linked to X-libraries (boo#1021043)

The idea is to get a framework / API, that can get a package to install and verify that a list of RPMs is not being pulled in by this.

openQA might be 'too late' - other ideas are welcome
