@HurricanePootis Most of those mentioned by Namcap are already needed by qt6-base.

control from the .deb package doesn't mention any dependencies as they are already included, and it doesn't use the system libraries; in fact, if you delete the bundled ones, the vpkedit binary will not run.

I reverted the qt6-base dependency (vpkedit also ran after I uninstalled it from my system). However, since this application uses icons for .desktop I added the hicolor-icon-theme dependency.

Hello, I am the maintainer of vpkedit and vpkedit-git.

Since this package bundles all of the QtLibraries, it is now dependent on a lot of other libraries and projects, and does not depend on system qt6-base. I have attached a patch file to this comment in order to improve the package.

For future reference, please use the tool namcap to view more package information.
