It knows nothing about Debian and "partially useful" packages. He just install distribution. Let's suppose that user A needs an editor. He tries to install Editor1. Oops. Seven-bit-editor. Editor2? The same thing. Editor3? The same. "Debain sucks" - says user A. "It cannot support my language". Well, he's simply don't know that he should install Editor18... I guess we should not include partially broken packages in release because it lowers the quality of distribution. -- Alexey Vyskubov (at home) Hi! I'm a .signature virus!
