pipewire-media-session pkg required even if WirePlumber is installed

Hi

Some packages depend on pipewire-media-session, when I believe all dependencies are fulfilled if another session manager (typically WirePlumber) is installed instead.

Shouldn't the dependencies be corrected to be either one or the other ?

List of packages

Required By (10)
    gst-plugin-pipewire
    kwin
    kwin (testing)
    pipewire-alsa
    pipewire-jack
    pipewire-pulse
    xdg-desktop-portal-wlr
    pipewire (optional)
    gnome-remote-desktop (check)
    mutter (check)

As a comparison I believe that on fedora pre F35, installing wireplumber removes pipewire-media-session (needs verification). Post F35, Wireplumber is default.

Thanks.
I understand from the comments that it won't be addressed ?

Take a look at this one https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/72283

In the meantime, I've worked around this issue by masking pipewire-media-session.service and enabling wireplumber.service
