Re: Autoinstall, upgrade, etc
Since we are keeping track of how a package is selected for
installation (user action, or auto selected 'cause of dependencies);
could we have notices (or red exclamation marks or whatever) show up
if a package is being auto selected/removed in direct contravention
of user action?
For example, I have sudo put on hold (since the new versions
of sudo fail to parse the config file); I would hate to have the
version upgraded after I had put it on hold. I know I'll have another
option to check this, but aybe if the auto-select-deselect mechanism
contradicts the user it should be treated sa a milder form of a
conflict? (like recommends is a milder form of depends).
Then people can choose to ignore mold conflicts (like
recommends and suggests are options).
I kinda like the symmetry.
I'd expand on this, but I'm in the middle of cooking; and
something will burn soon
