[Bug 1436211] Re: Remove GTK3 from phone images


>From cursory grepping, it looks like evolution-data-server's direct use
of gtk+ is limited to (a) generating documentation with gtk-doc and (b)
loading gtk modules when running tests with the environment variable

libgweather's got a harder dependency on gtk, but evolution-data-
server's use of libgweather is optional and can be turned off in its
configure script with --disable-gtk, which also disables its use of gcr

Bug description:
  This is a wishlist bug to eventually remove GTK3 from Ubuntu Phone
  images to save some space.


  -- address-book-service --

  address-book-service depends on evolution-data-server, which depends
  on GTK3. evolution-data-server further depends on libgweather-3-6 and
  libgcr-ui-3-1 which both directly depend on GTK3 too.

  Would it be possible to work with libfolks-eds25 and other libraries
  alone? Or would it be possible to modify evolution-data-server
  building to not depend on GTK3 since we're not using the toolkit

  -- themes (unity-asset-pool, adwaita-icon-theme...) --

  humanity-icon-theme, ubuntu-mono and unity-asset-pool depend on
  adwaita-icon-theme. adwaita-icon-theme directly depends on GTK3.

  -- ubuntu-system-settings --

  ubuntu-system-settings depends on libtimezonemap1 which directly
  depends on GTK3. Maybe the library could be made not to depend on

  -- gnome-control-center-signon --
  Since libaccount-plugin-1.0-0 is included on Ubuntu Phone images, would it be possible to refactor it so that it would not depend on GTK3 bringing it on the images?
