Re: Doc languages
Unfortunately, what we need to do is press for the dpkg features that
we're going to need, since this may take a long time to actually
appear. Someone needs to formulate this list and make sure the
debian-dpkg and the herring lists (new dpkg) are aware of our needs.
Possible set of new dpkg needs:
* ability to filter files installed by path glob or regexp
(i.e., don't install /usr/share/man/ja* or whatever)
* ability to comprehend a new package state, "installed properly but
some files removed" (do we need this?)
* ability to reinstall "some files removed" pacakges when the
file-system based removal scheme changes
Any other features?
