Package: gnome-games-app
Version: 3.38.0-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

gnome-games-app is able to take advantage of several libretro cores, but this
is not reflected in package relationships.

Currently, with no libretro core installed, if a user tries to run a game, they
will get this message: “The system 'foo' isn’t supported yet, but full support
is planned”. This is rather misleading, since the solution is simply to do an
“apt install”.

I therefore think that gnome-games-app should declare a Depends, a Recommends,
or at the very least a Suggests, on all the libretro cores that it is able to
