I can add one; it's not a lot of overhead given that lintian already has
framework for checking for bad dependencies. It's basically just another
branch in an if statement.
What's the precise check? Any package depending on python-minimal should
receive an error (or a warning?)
Based on Vorlon's message:
If (package depends on python-minimal) and (package is not essential) then
It's pretty definitely a bug, so AIUI should be marked as an error.
with roughly the text of Steve's previous message?
Short message: "Non-essential package depends on python-minimal."
Long Message: Something along the lines of Steve's meassage.
Uh... sure :)
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
