Default wajig commandline changes

I have been using wajig for years and now the commandline options has
changed and I find it a bit annoying.

Example.

I could quickly type 'wajig list emacs' to find out which emacs-related
packages were installed on my system. Now I have to type

'wajig listinstalled | grep emacs'

- nearly twice the number of characters needed for the same result.

Regards
Johann

It's usually a good sign seeing packages change and evolve, this means
they're not abandoned.

I don't use the package (so I could have missed something obvious) but
you mean the "list" argument does not work? :-?

I have found this but maybe is outdated:

There's no question in your email, so I'm not sure what you want us to
do about your issue. You could create a function (or script) for it,
and save yourself even more typing than in your original scenario,
I suppose. I'd suggest do something like this:

wajiglist() { wajig listinstalled "$1"; }

although TBH I'm not sure that it gains you anything over this:

wajiglist() { dpkg -l "*$1*"; }

Chris

Default wajig commandline changes

I also use wajig.* I mostly use the interactive mode and the list
command is broken there also.* A fellow contacted me who is working
on wajig.* He was looking for users to test the changed he is making
to wajig.* He has upped the testing version to 2.5~pre.* He has
fixed some problems but some remain in the toupgrade and list
commands as you have found out.* If you would like to contribute the
developer is Tshepang Lekhonkhobe at tshepang@gmail.com.*



He has a list of about 15 people who are aparently use wajig and are
helping out with the testing of the new code.* I would like to see
the list command (and there are others that are suppose to take
arguments) be fixed so that it works as it used to in version 2.2.
