          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: Visual Studio Integration

libgdiplus is only a 'recommends' of mono-core and System.Drawing is a package
dependency of System.Web however, System.Drawing requires libgdiplus.

Since it is only a recommends, it is not installed through normal RPM
dependencies and as a result, many ASP.NET apps will fail with a missing
dependency on libgdiplus such as blogengine.

Rather than let people building packages try to figure out what is missing and
which packages to add for this failed dependency, we need to add

 Requires: libgdiplus

to the spec files of RPMs which we build in MonoVS.
