Description of problem:
After last update in Rawhide additional dependencies was installed: nodejs, php-cli, ruby.
/usr/bin/ruby required for dolphin-17.12.2-2.fc28
/usr/bin/node required for kf5-purpose-5.43.0-1.fc28
/usr/bin/php required for kcachegrind-17.12.2-1.fc28
Extra deps should not be installed if they not really needed.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 28 development cycle.
Changing version to '28'.
Ouch! I really don't think we want all those interpreters on the live image!
purpose includes a plugins for a bunch of stuff, these are likely responsible for pulling in all the extra dependencies.
I've a TODO to work on spliting those out and/or managing the extra dependencies any other smart way. Assistance or advice on how best to do that would be appreciated.
Uh, there are 3 different KDE packages dragging in one interpreter each.
Can you split this plugins into a separate packages? I don't want to install PHP/Ruby, etc. on my desktop. This plugins must be optional.
It's on our todo list, which unfortunately, is quite large. Patches welcome.

+- twitter subpkg, spilts out extra nodejs runtime dep (#1546510)
Dolphin's ruby runtime dep is... tricky, I don't see any easy way of splitting that out, unless we split out *all* of the servicemenu kcm, ie,
(The ruby dep is specifically about downloading/installing servicemenu addons from GHNS).
kcachegrind... I'm a little less concerned about... as that is more a developer tool.
Please push this fix into F28 too.
It will be included in the next kf5 release (coming soon, probably next week)
