Re: DEITY TEAM -- REQUEST FOR FUNCTIONALITY and COMMENTS
(I already posted this, but without the requested header. Apologies
for the repetition.)
For an initial installation, the user should be making *binary*
choices -- whether to include or exclude a package (or group of
packages). There should be no distinction between "hold" and
"install", or between "remove" and "purge".
The tool should account for disk space. The primary cost of
installing a package is the disk space it occupies. At present, the
package size is available (if you know where to look for it). The
installed size is sometimes available. There is no running total of
the space required.
