Package: ibus-gtk
Version: 1.5.14-3
Tags: patch

I'm attaching a patch in a follow-up email to allow ibus-gtk to not
have a dependency on libgtk2.0-0. I believe this is safe because the
package only provides an input method module for GTK2. GTK2 should be
the only thing that would try to load that.

This is important because it's desirable to have systems that don't
have GTK2 installed by default but that will still work well when GTK2
apps are installed.

I intend to apply the patch in Ubuntu soon. Please apply in Debian so
that I can drop libgtk2.0-0's new Recommends on ibus-gtk.
