But it is not in use anywhere in aosp. I have never needed it, at least since m. I on't see it mentioned in androids official instructions either.

I see the same issue as suliman. ( I think, I don't have the shell in my hand right now )

If it's in use somewhere in AOSP it is appropriate for this meta package, and I don't really want to remove it without testing if that is really the case.

Give me a week to try and set up a clean build environment so that I can test whether wxgtk is really needed. After that, we can still go for the "remove (or move to lineageos-devel) and see if anyone complains" strategy (feel free to mark the package out-of-date in case I forget, I guess).

EDIT: What software configuration conflicts on upgrade at the moment if wxgtk2 is installed?

@timschumi Could we remove it, I don't think wxgtk or any variant there of is appropriate for this "meta" package. I think it should also be removed from the wiki for the aosp section. If really needed it could be added to the lineageos-devel meta package. Then I can avoid installing that to avoid package conflict issues.

I can't find any uses of wxgtk using some basic grep commands, except for p7zip's UI (which is LineageOS-specific and I'm pretty sure that the UI itself isn't even built). Unfortunately, I don't have a clean environment available right now where I can test this.

wxgtk2 has been chosen after wxgtk wasn't a thing anymore because it is mentioned on the Arch wiki specifically and because wxgtk2 previously had a provides/replaces for wxgtk.

Mmmm, what in aosp really depends on wxgtk let alone wxgtk2 explicitly?

The new correct link in the wiki is or (depending on what you think suits better)

I now bumped the requirement to wxgtk2, since the wiki mentions that explicitly and I doubt that anything half-modern still depends on wxgtk. Let me know in case you find any issues.

The provides=(wxgtk) was dropped in wxgtk2
