hicolor-icon-theme is a filesystem package. Apart from a README, a
COPYING, a Changelog and one %ghost it contains one (1) file.
And 340 directories.
This is the filesystem package that packages that install icons are
supposed to depend on.
That's the answer I needed. Thank you. IMO, this is not clear in the
current packaging guidelines. In fact, the icon cache section says:
"Note that no dependencies should be added for this." It appears that
it is actually talking about not depending on gtk2 or
/usr/bin/gtk-update-icon-cache, but that is confusing the issue of
depending on hicolor-icon-theme. Could the packaging committee please
clarify this issue?
