I'm not an expert in this barcode stuff, to be honest. Maybe I should change the description of the iec16022 dependency to "use IEC barcodes"?

just of out curiosity, why do we need the iec16022 dependency? I don't have it installed, yet the barcode-insert feature works. Indeed there is a builtin support for barcodes in glabels. Maybe they are not as nice as the iec barcodes, but they work. Incidentally, remember that optional dependencies must be installed before compiling glabels for them to be supported.

The community/ package has hard dependencies on evolution-data-server iec16022 qrencode zint which are optional in glabels-light. I don't know why the hard dependencies of glabels-light (dconf, desktop-file-utils, librsvg and xdg-utils) are missing in the community/ package. As far as I understand they are necessary for Glabels to run.

why is a version with more depends called -light?

Unfortunately, I'm not an expert in this barcode stuff. Does zint supersede the other barcode libs (iec16022 and qrencode)? Should it be an optional dependency (as in "light")? Same question about gtk3-print-backend. To be honest, I used glabels only once and needed neither printing nor barcodes, that's why I didn't notice those dependencies being missing. Therefore I cannot really judge which of this functionality is considered core functionality. edit: Maybe you would like to be added as co-maintainer or even take this package over completely? I don't think, I will be using glabels any time soon...

Thank you for having updated this package. It is useful, as I do not use evolution, and dependancies of community glabels package are heavy. I suggest to add gtk3-print-backend as dependance, because without it, system printers are not available in glabels. I also suggest to add zint as dependance, for user experience, as it is explained here :
