Summary: Discover never asks for confirmation to install
dependencies

Status: REPORTED
Severity: normal
Priority: NOR
Component: discover

Target Milestone: ---

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. install any software with several dependencies (audacity audio editor, for
example)
2.
3.

OBSERVED RESULT
Discover does not ask for confirmation to install the dependencies.
It only asks for the password and starts to install all the packages
immediately.

EXPECTED RESULT
Discover must request confirmation to install the dependencies, as it requested
until some releases ago.

KDE neon Developer Edition
KDE Plasma: 5.14.80
KDE Frameworks: 5.53.0

--- Comment #1 from Nate Graham <***@kde.org> ---
Why? The app can't be installed without its dependencies. If you want the app,
you need to install the dependencies. Allowing you to install an app but then
deny installing the dependencies makes no sense; it would be like buying a car
and being asked if you want the wheels too. Since it won't work without the
wheels, of course you want them!
