I have revised the patch. -Dcheese=auto is for camera support for the
new user to set profile picture by taking selfie via camera.
-Dsystemd=false is to disable systemd dependency.

The application starts up as a set-up wizard when new user login for
first time, to configure the GNOME desktop. It typically provides a
tour of all gnome components and allows the user set settings for each.

I have built, installed and ran it for testing. Works good. Those
dependencies need not be propagated. I think the application uses
data/information from those packages and present it to user during the

Yeah, I revised the patch.

it is for now, as I will be revising all gnome packages in the near
future. :-)

Please find the revised patch (v2) attached with this email.
