Summary0001555: bareos-webui depends needlessly on libapache2-mod-fcgid
DescriptionThe official debian package from the community repository has the following depends:

> Depends: apache2 | httpd, libapache2-mod-fcgid, php-fpm (>= 7.0), php-date, php-intl, php-json, php-curl

When using any http server other than apache2 the dependency on libapache2-mod-fcgid is wrong and is pulling unnecessary additional dependencies (something like apache2-bin). Other official debian packages are using "Recommends" (f.e. sympa) or "Suggests" (f.a. munin or oar-restful-api) for such dependencies.

Can you downgrade the dependency on libapache2-mod-fcgid to at least recommends? "Recommends" would still install libapache2-mod-fcgid in default setups, but would allow the server administrator to skip the installation or to remove the package afterwards.
TagsNo tags attached.
