Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

E depends-on-metapackage

This package is one of the packages that Lintian believes is a metapackage: a package that exists for the convenience of users or installers to install a set of related packages. Packages that are not themselves metapackages must not depend on metapackages, since this may prevent the user from removing portions of the package set they don't need.
