I dont know if you missed the point of my message on purpose or not. I never pretended that you can't extract that information. I maintain that having sane defaults would empower me to almost never care about aliases, scripts pipes, filter , regular expressions and what not. It is great that all this power is at my fingertips, in case something goes awfully wrong , not so great when Im forced to use it.
And I really don't see how this helps anyway, since number of leafs will increase anyway with package base. Let me reiterate, perhaps clearer this time: It is my opinion that sane defaults beat ANY script, obscure command line arguments, alias, pipe, filter, helper program. > > Don't use "pkg info" then.

This question is irrelevant. 1.First of all, many people consider packaging base a great accomplishment, yet maybe not ready for prime-time, given the current way pkg handles this information. I personally love the idea, with the caveats above. 2. The issue is present with all meta-packages in general. The base packaging only exacerbate an existing issue with the sheer number of packages it presents. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
