While thats nice, it doesn't help in this regard. It is a subpackage of
the main evolution source rpm. That means that the source rpm cannot go
outside the Fedora build system. Not until we made modifications to how
packages are brought in and how we look at the distribution.
As it stands, it is not feasible to move Evolution outside of Core.
This may change in the (near?) future, but that is left to be seen.
Agreed but that is still no excuse for the sometimes somewhat bizarre
dep chains. If a package functions fine (although feature limited)
without something and putting this something in launches a (long) extra
depchain and the part which requires this can be seperated into a
subpackage it should be a in subpackage.
