Description Sudhir Khanger 2014-10-14 08:13:04 UTC
Description of problem: 

Deja-dup requires way too many dependencies on Fedora. I don't run Gnome and I would like to avoid as many Gnome based dependencies as possible. Is there a way to get rid of dependencies that aren't essential to the core functionality of deja-dup? Maybe we could package them as deja-dup-extra.

Here are the dependencies required by deja-dup on Fedora.
adwaita-gtk2-theme adwaita-gtk3-theme desktop-backgrounds-gnome duplicity exempi gjs gmime gnome-desktop3 gnome-js-common gnome-themes-standard heisenbug-backgrounds-gnome libcue libgsf libgxps libiptcdata libosinfo libpeas libquvi libquvi-scripts librsync lua-expat lua-json lua-lpeg lua-socket nautilus nautilus-extensions ncftp python-GnuPGInterface python-boto python-cloudfiles python-dropbox seed totem-pl-parser tracker

Here are the dependencies required by deja-dup on Arch Linux. Some of them are optional and make dependencies.
gnome-keyring (optional) - save passwords
nautilus (optional) - backup extension
python2-boto (optional) - Amazon S3 backend
cmake (make)
intltool (make)
itstool (make)
nautilus (make)
vala (make)

Comment 1 Rahul Sundaram 2014-10-14 14:05:02 UTC
The explicit requires in deja-dup is pretty minimal

Requires:       duplicity >= 0.6.23
Requires:       python-cloudfiles
Requires:       dconf
Requires(post): /usr/bin/gtk-update-icon-cache
Requires(postun): /usr/bin/gtk-update-icon-cache

Everything else is either getting picked up automatically or is actually a dependency of duplicity etc.  The only think I can think of to split is the nautilus dependency into a sub package.

Comment 2 Sudhir Khanger 2014-10-15 11:04:21 UTC
Thanks Rahul. That is something I would like. I hope that would avoid downloading particular themes and wallpapers which I think are pulled by nautilus and not deja-dup itself.

Looking forward to the split packages.
