Description Enrico Scholz 2005-11-04 04:38:03 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):


How reproducible:

Agreed, it's on TODO list in fact.  I'll update this entry once it's done.
Comment 2 Chris Wright 2006-01-11 12:51:00 EST
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
