Re: Re: Some coriousities about debian package maintaining
I want to thank you both for telling me your unswayed opinion, and for the
tip disabling automatic installing of recommends. I were not yet that
familar to Apt, to know switches like that.
The topic is closed for me, I installed tsocks back on the system.
Nevertheless, it seems like asking here wasn't good for me.
Just noticed, an hour after posting here...
15:06 - You were kicked from the channel by [weasel]
I am sorry weasel, I didn't want to criticize you that way.

You might want to look at the equivs tool which can be used to "trick"
the package management system (which indeed behaves correctly in the
case you brought to the technical committee).
