I'm sorry, but I think the opposite will be the case, this will cause *more* confusion: what are "installed transitive build depends" vs "actual transitive build depends"? I know that *you* have grasped the concept of transitive build depends very well, but I'm pretty sure that 97% of the DD population have no idea what transitive build depends are, especially compared to build-depends or alternative build-depends. And even 70% were too many. (AFAIK transitive build-depends are all possible build depends, so if a package build depends on python2 || python3 both python versions will be part of the transitive build depends. (Is that even correct?) Also see $(torsocks dict transitive) - what does this word even mean? ;-) cheers, Holger
