An "enum" for Python 3
An unexpected perf feature
LWN.net Weekly Edition for May 16, 2013
A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
Since Ubuntu by default installs recommended packages (but afaik not suggested packages) konqueror is "pulled in".
So to install digikam with the kipi-plugins (and exiv2), but without Konqueror and Dolphin one could use the following command:
aptitude -R install digikam kipi-plugins+M exiv2+M
To find out about the dependencies I find the "-D"-switch for aptitude usually very helpful. Or use
aptitude -R digikam
and look out for RECOMMENDED but not installed packages
digiKam in Ubuntu RECOMMENDS konqueror

Debian Packaging Policy [OT]

The difference as per Debian Packaging Policy is a matter of degree:
I think that this fine-grained dependency tracking allows Debian (and derivatives) to strike a good compromise between simplicity and configurability in terms of dependency management.
