Huh, pretty straight forward - use tarjans method, get the strongly connected sets, and you can dump out the loops immediately. If you want to be able to say 'package X is at fault' - well, adding packages one by one does not tell you that - the loop exists in the archive, adding packages one by one only tells you when you have pulled in enough to show the loop. -Rob -- GPG key available at: <http://www.robertcollins.net/keys.txt>.
