python-gi DEB package was missing

April 02, 2020 — BarryK

In Easy 2.2.14, if you use PETget (package manager, PPM) and install a package, 'python-gi' will show as a missing dependency.

However, 'python-gi' isn't actually needed. The DEB package 'python-gi-dev' lists 'python-gi' and 'python3-gi' as dependencies, but only the latter is needed by Blueman (the Bluetooth manager, see the tray).

Anyway, to get rid of that message about missing dependency, I have added 'python-gi' to the build list, so it will be in the next release.
