Re: To Require yelp or not to require yelp

yelp comes with a dependency chain. In the case of dia, adding a dependency on yelp (whether directly or indirectly if the dep is in some gnome lib packages), that right stuff would result in the need to additionally install yelp, desktop-file-utils, docbook-dtds, fedora-bookmarks, firefox, gnome-doc-utils, libXt, libbeagle, nspr, nss, openjade, opensp, scrollkeeper, sgml-common, and xml-common.

I think your example is a great one. Do we really want to force an app like dia to pull in all this crap just to use it? Do we want to basically force everyone that uses a GUI to install firefox and libbeagle? nspluginwrapper is going to be a requirement of the browser stack soon. XULrunner is going to come with an additional set of dependencies.
