Description Matthias Clasen 2013-05-14 21:40:45 EDT
It is documented as 'needed for the libvirt-guests initscript'.

However, that initscript doesn't exist anymore, and the systemd service file shows no signs of needing gettext.
Comment 1 Eric Blake 2013-05-14 22:09:30 EDT
The systemd service file calls into the /usr/libexec/libvirt-guests.sh shell script, and THAT file DOES deppend on gettext.  Basically, when we moved from initscripts to systemd, we migrated what used to be the init script into a standalone shell script that both initscripts and systemd could reuse.

As such, I'm closing this as not a bug; the dependency on gettext is intentional.
Comment 2 Eric Blake 2013-05-14 23:09:14 EDT
That said, I did make this upstream tweak to fix the comment.
