Oh no! I just realized there's a problem with this: we need to make network-manager-gnome a dependency in debian/control! Perhaps better to call it a recommend as it's supposedly a "pure Qt application" according to the description. At least this will be important for non-Lubuntu users of the package.

One other thing: the referenced bug is a duplicate. It should be:

I don't get it.
the patch is only for us, right? Or it is for whole ubuntu?

Nope. Everything we put in the archive affects anyone that installs it. Every package is available to everyone.

So, I wanted to change debian/control to add network-manager-gnome as recommended and I found out that debian/control for nm-tray is different in sid that in our phab? The difference I'm pointing out is the "depends" on sid there is network-manager and qterminal, in phab none.

Since we have changed nm-tray to use nm-connection-editor instead of nm-tui, it's not relevant to depend on a terminal; otherwise it would make sense.

As for the network-manager dependency, I think this is resolved by depending on libkf5networkmanagerqt-dev. Unfortunately, that's an erroneous depend as that's a build depend not a runtime one. That should probably be fixed. On the other hand, it's also not relevant where we have a dependency on network-manager-gnome.

Part of me wonders if we shouldn't actually reverse all these changes and leave nm-tray as it is and instead use conman like upstream suggests. @tsimonq2 seems to be against it but it's not clear why.
