  ubuntu-minimal should not depend on ureadahead

Status in “ubuntu-meta” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  ubuntu-minimal currently depends on ureadahead.  I am not too sure of
  the rationale behind that, but it seems to me that ureadahead is not a
  core feature of Ubuntu; it's more like an optimization.

  It's perfectly reasonable to assume that ureadhead would be better
  left off a Ubuntu system in certain circumstances.  For example,
  someone may elect to remove ureadahead to work around bug #523484.
  The core Ubuntu functionality would not change; it would only boot a
  little slower.

  As such, can it be considered to remove ureadahead from ubuntu-minimal
