I'm not sure I completely agree with your reasoning still. I use procmail on many systems (not just Slackware) and procmail too is very old. Same thing with irssi.

What I've noticed in Slackware is that a package normally isn't removed unless it can be replaced or if it's a dependency that is no longer used by anything (e.g. module-init-tools was replaced by kmod, the transition to calligra from the other KDE office suite removed many unused dependencies).

As with the latter situation, slang1 does not fit the bill in addition to the fact that (as previously stated by others) some might still be using slang1 or even the aalib that was built against slang1.

No, problem, juste a question


I just find it a bit odd to have a double dependence (slang and slang1) on the software compiled on aalib.

Is there anything wrong suggesting him to remove init, as Arch Linux now uses systemd?
