Hi all!

Just a comment/suggestion related to reverse deps:

Then, it would be useful to have a field called "OPTIONAL" or "USEDIFINSTALLED" in the .info files for cases like this.

Best regards,


Hi Fellype,

The problem is everyone's list of optional deps they actually use will be different. If you are using sbopkg or slackrepo (or other tools I'm not familiar with), then you will have a list of your optional deps locally. That's why the suggested solutions so far make use of this user-created information.
