for squeeze (sorry) I'm seeing 214 depends called out in Sources not found anywhere in Packages or
Sources (not as provides , not anywhere , not even by grep'ing anything!)
Oh dang one find but still it's "not good". (I just re-checked by grep'ing Packages (before I'd
checked a package table from Packages sorry)
Maintainer: Matthias Klose <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Depends: libreadline5 (= 5.0-10), libncurses5-dev
However! That's in Packages not Sources. And see it Conflicts with what it Provides.
Look at it from my perspective: sub-optimal. My code would have to deal with intricacy of both
Packages and Sources at once and know impossible things like Provides what it Conflicts is "ok" -
noting there IS NO LIBREADLINE-DEV it only exists as provides to begin with so how does it conflict?
(note: libreadline5-dev is in Sources , yes - but nowwhere is libreadline-dev - and that's only one
of 214 what about the other 213 and what weird work arounds exist if calculating both Sources and
Packages at once - and if from status and status-sources know what i mean ?? )
"show-all" and "depend-order-install-source" are in:
Have Fun all !
