Gosh, it has been months.  I'm not sure, and I'm pretty mentally spent.

It is an eternal question. :-)  Should installing the package “python-foo”
or “r-bar” also install the package “python” or the package “r-minimal”?

Well, the answer seems being: it is up to the user.  Because of
diversity.  Imagine that I want to install Git version x.y and the Git
package coming with “git:send-email” is at version p.q.  Just one

Therefore, I do not think it can be considered as a bug.

I am not sure to understand.  What do you mean?  Could you provide an
example to reproduce?

All the best,
