Re: [RFC] DEP-6: Meta-Package debian/control field

Hi David,

thanks for taking the initiative of improving the management of meta-packages.
As you see now, it is a big project !

Like any major change in the package management system, the safest solution to
the problem is patience: implement the solution in given release, let the users
have update all their core package management programs in the next release, and
start to distribute new meta-packages in the next next release.

It looks like a long process, but it also remove a lot of constraints. And do
not worry on having to wait… time files amazingly fast !

Have a nice day, and good luck to DEP-6.
