I'm not sure. A "recommends" would still not fix it for everybody and
therefore the project itself should get fixed probably.

Please file a bug about this (including your findings of course), so we
can use this for future reference at least.

You might want to contact the project maintainers
about this. Maybe there's some documentation about this already?

Thank you,
