One more thing, but it is not related to frameworks... What is your opinion on libsoup?
libsoup vs libcurl
The most annoying is this: "libsoup is using GNOME-related libs, making it a less convenient choice for non-GNOME environments"
pacman -Sii libsoup
appstream appstream-glib darktable fwupd gst-plugins-good networkmanager ostree
networkmanager ported to curl
telepathy-gabble libsoup is probably optional.
ostree can be configured --with-curl --without-soup
With rest apps it will probably be difficult to get rid of libsoup.
Sorry for the noise if it's a wrong topic.
