apt-findremovable v0.1 (initial release)
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I hope this is the right mailinglist for this.
I always had the problem, that if I removed a package via apt-get
remove, that there were still other packages that only were installed
because of that package.
I wrote a little perl-script:
apt-findremovable - tries to find out which packages might be installed
only because of a specified one.
$ apt-findremovable <package-name>
we use 'apt-cache depends' and 'apt-cache rdepends' to find out which
packages might be installed only because of the specified one.
$ ./apt-findremovable texlive
Only texlive depends on the following installed packages:
The v0.1 release can downloaded via:
So my questions are:
Is there a mailinglist special for apt-tools?
Does a tool like this already exist?
Would alioth.debian.org be the right place for this?
