Most Gconv modules with the exception of unicode and similar essential ones have been split into a separate package called glibc-gconv-extra. Currently, the core package glibc has a strong (Requires) dependency on glibc-gconv-extra making this change transparent to users. This proposal is to weaken this dependency to Recommends so that it is possible to remove glibc-gconv-extra from installations that do not need it.
