Reduce dependencies; split out 'gitk'
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:16 EST
Description of problem:
Please move 'gitk' into an own subpackage. It is not needed for core
functionality but introduces a bunch of new dependencies (tk -> X11). On small
systems (e.g. web frontends for git repositories), these deps are usually not
installed and would introduce new and unneeded complexity.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Agreed, it's on TODO list in fact. I'll update this entry once it's done.
Fixed in latest extras release (git-core-1.1.1 should reach mirrors today).
Packages are now: git-core, git-svn, git-cvs, git-arch, gitk
