The package I build contains /usr/share/mime stuff.

If shared-mime-info is not included in depends=() list namcap says:
synce-gvfs E: Dependency detected and not included ('shared-mime-info')

if included:
synce-gvfs W: Dependency included and not needed ('shared-mime-info')

So should I include dependency or not?
Seems to be related to  FS#16491 
This task depends upon

namcap should also traverse the dependency tree, as shared-mime-info is included in gtk2 dependencies.

I've experienced this thing too with my z80asmide package in AUR, but I think this problem is related to here:  FS#15591 
Maybe the task is added in the TODO list with 'Share informations between modules'.
