  • Field changed: Summary (networkmanager-openvpn pulls GTK+/GNOME deps → [networkmanager-openvpn] Split out cli)
  • Field changed: Status (Unconfirmed → Assigned)
  • Task assigned to Ionut Biru (wonder)
I don't consider this a duplicate, since the user here is trying to split the package and not to disable GTK3 support (as the previous one did).
Please Ioni take a look.
