[Pkg-acpi-devel] Bug#686020: acpi-support-base: Please downgrade consolekit recommend into a suggestion

Package: acpi-support-base
Version: 0.140-5
Severity: important


The installed size of the base system has increased a lot between
squeeze and wheezy. One of the reasons is that acpi-support-base now
recommends consolekit, which brings a lot of things (libx11, libglib,
dbus, ...). Is there a strong reason to get consolekit pulled even for a
base system?

 * PAWS allows us longer timeouts and large windows, so once implemented
