[Pkg-ayatana-devel] Bug#954108: Unnecessary/unused dependency on libdbus-glib-1-dev

Package: libdbusmenu-gtk3-dev
Version: 18.10.20180917~bzr492+repack1-1
Severity: normal

libdbusmenu-gtk3-dev declares a dependency 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 dbusmenu-gtk3-0.4.pc seem to require dbus-glib.

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