Can we please enhance the packaging guidelines and request packagers to
add comments to explicit Requires more often than not?
Explicit Requires on package names are fragile. The contents of the
required package may move to a different (sub)package.
Uncommented Requires don't give a hint about why they have been added and
what inside a package is needed (with obvious exceptions, such as one
Python based package requiring another Python based package). What inside
a package is required? An executable? A directory? A datadir? A DBus
but it focuses on library deps and in particular specific versions.
What do you think?
