    Default My poor AppArmor-Utils, what misfortune befell you yesterday?

    Can anyone shed some light on what appears to be errant dependency bloat? In the recent (yesterday?) update to apparmor-utils, the following 196 new dependency packages were required for a simple zypper dup on text-only 42.3 servers:
    Code:

    196 new packages to install.
    The offending package "apparmor-utils" has been removed from the servers with a hope of future correction/resolution. Any ideas what/why this happened?

    I'll submit a bug report if it's not some "feature" upgrade, otherwise, it looks like these opensuse text-based servers will be losing their AppArmor support/packages...

    Thanks!

    Bumping this with a fairly recent pre-exisiting bug report from Ismail Donmez: https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1067477.

    It looks like apparmor-utils has a Recommends for libnotify4 in libnotify-tools, which then dumps in the unwanted gnome packages, along with the obligatory X-Server - all this cruft is to support AppArmor's desktop notifications to /usr/bin/notify-send.

    I second a suggestion from Ludwig Nussel to use "Suggests" instead of "Recommends" - or "splitting aa-notify out to a separate subpackage that uses packageand".
