Remove qt dev apps and avahi

Is it safe to remove these Qt apps and Qt V4l2? And also those Avahi apps on KDE
Why does manjaro install these by default Why does it assume all users are developers?

No assumptions is made on the end users qualifications as developer.

It is simply a matter of dependencies. You are welcome to remove them but please take a close look at the consequences before executing the actual removal.

For example v4l-utils is required by qt5-webengine, systemsettings, plasma-nm, sane, and more.


And Qt dev apps are installed with qt5-tools package needed by Spectacle for qdbus CLI app.
