installing canonical-certification-server pulls in mysql, 159Mb of pkgs

Asked by Mark Brown

I created a minimal server using the daily Trusty build from 5 February. I chose "OpenSSH Server" and nothing else to be installed.

After the install, I did:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:checkbox-dev/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install canonical-certification-server

At this point 159Mb of packages were installed, including MySQL server (which then asked me for a password, etc). This was somewhat unexpected.

So we really have that many dependencies?
