Source: empathy
Version: 3.12.12-2
Severity: normal
User: dbus at packages.debian.org
Usertags: dbus-launch default-dbus-session-bus

As described in <https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2016/08/msg00554.html>
I'm trying to reduce how much dbus-launch is used in Debian.
This package currently Depends on dbus-x11 as a way to get a session bus.

This package falls into the "other software that relies on D-Bus"
category (and in fact is the example I used in the MBF mail for that
category): please replace

    Depends: dbus-x11


    Depends: default-dbus-session-bus | dbus-session-bus

so that either dbus-user-session or dbus-x11 can be used. My short-term
goal with this is that major desktop environments in Debian stretch should
be able to run with either dbus-user-session or dbus-x11, with the other
one uninstalled.
