[Pkg-ayatana-devel] Bug#954105: Unnecessary/unused dependency on libdbus-glib-1-dev

Package: libayatana-appindicator3-dev
Version: 0.5.4-2
Severity: normal

libayatana-appindicator3-dev depends on libdbus-glib-1-dev (which is a
deprecated library).
I can't find a reason why this dependency is necessary. Neither the
header files nor ayatana-appindicator3-0.1.pc seem to require dbus-glib.

Please consider removing the libdbus-glib-1-dev dependency.
