python2-poppler is a missing dependency. If it's not exist, I get the following error:
"ImportError: No module named poppler"
I attached a PKGBUILD for python2-poppler.

And now, gnome-python-extras package is splitted by modules, so it can be replaced by the appropriate modules. The dependency array could be the following:
depends=('python2-libgnome' 'python2-gtkspell' 'metakit' 'python-imaging' 'python2-poppler' 'python-reportlab' 'python2-sqlalchemy')
   PKGBUILD (0.7 KiB)
This task depends upon

Not a bug. Without poppler bindings no core functionality is lost.

Ok, but if you think that, then you should move 'python-reportlab' also to optdepends, because gourmet's 'pdf_plugin' requires both of them, and it shows an error when you try to print a recipe if missing one of them. I think that printing support is a core feature, so please keep both of them in depends.

And it seems that libgnomeprintui is not required for printing support, you could remove them from optdepends.

python-reportlab does not need to be moved to optdepends. As per upstream [1] pyrtf and python-poppler are "extra" requirements. This way you can only be missing the rtf and poppler bindings. Just install them to complete the feature set. I have also kept gnome-python-extras as-is since upstream recommends that.

I don't think that. Run a python dependency finder (e.g. snakefood) on gourmet, and you will see that both reportlab and pypoppler are only used in pdf_plugin. The reportlab not brings any functionality without pypoppler, because both of them required by pdf_plugin.

And gnome-python-extras brings many unnecessarily dependencies, it should be avoided. Gourmet uses the python2-gtkspell module only for it's spell checking plugin; all other modules are unneeded.

At last, please see the dependences of Ubuntu's gourmet package:

You convinced me to go check this out and you're right. A grep reveals only and as the matches. Very well, I will add these to depends since I don't think anyone will complain about the weight of python-poppler.

Thanks. :) Anyway, gnome-python-extras is the heaviest dependency; if you replace them, Gourmet will be much lighter.
