EOS Qickstart Installer installed despite deselection

During my last installation of EOS Plasma, I deselected the EOS Qickstart Installer during the online installation, because I don’t need it. However, it was still on the system after the installation was complete. A bug? How can I uninstall it cleanly afterwards (package name)?

$ pacman -Qs Quickstart
local/eos-quickstart 1.3-2
    An application for getting a quick start with installing packages

eos-quickstart is a dependency of the Welcome app:

$ pacman -Si welcome
Repository : endeavouros
Name : welcome
Version : 3.33-1
Description : Welcome greeter for new EndeavourOS users.
Architecture : any
URL : https://github.com/endeavouros-team/PKGBUILDS/tree/master/welcome
Licenses : GPL
Groups : None
Provides : None
Depends On : systemd eos-bash-shared eos-translations eos-quickstart

So if you have Welcome app installed, it has pulled in eos-quickstart.

OK, but then why is it even offered for deselection during installation if it is brought by the Welcome app anyway?

$ sudo pacman -R eos-quickstart

:: Entfernen von eos-quickstart verletzt Abhängigkeit »eos-quickstart«, benötigt von welcome

That it is there on the list is perhaps because it can be installed as an stand-alone app without the Welcome app.

Because you can deselect the welcome app and still install eos-quickstart if you chose to do so.
