Dependency chain painpoints

Dep chain requirements are very gnome specific and unforgiving of non-gnome users.
Some meetings we've had with the spins group as part of the SWG board subgroup showed that a common pain point is the dep changes that pull gnome packages in. We weren't sure about the technical problems or any possible solutions
When the spins make CDs and things, they often have to rely on comps for things. Some dep chains are pretty crazy, the example given in our SWG meeting was system-config-keyboard
We have no idea, but since it was a common pain point we wanted to make sure to present it to FESCo for discussion.
This would probably impact whoever controls comps the most and possibly the packagers of some of those core packages.
I'll own it but I might pass it off to a spin maker since it actually impacts them, I'm more of a messenger.
