Bug#161849: general: many packages still depend on textutils|shellutils|fileutils

Package: general
Version: unavailable; reported 2002-09-22
Severity: important
Tags: sid

I am filing a general bug instead of filing mass bug reports on the 21
broken packages on my system. Packages should now depend on coreutils
instead of fileutils, shellutils, or textutils, as these are dummy
packages which are present for upgrade purposes only. This bug is
important because among the removed packages would be build-essential,
the kernel, and debian-policy. I rather like having the kernel on my system;
it makes booting ever so much easier.

Transcript follows:

root@stonewall:~# apt-get remove fileutils shellutils textutils
