Can someone please explain to me why I'm asked to download 32.2Mb of an
update that has as a description:
"No change rebuild to satisfy build dependency for kdepim security
What I'm really asking is these three different questions:
1. Why am I downloading something that is no different from the
previous version. As I understand the packaging system, any update
to kdepim should be more than able to cope with being part of a
specific version using depends and requires.
2. Why am I downloading that much data for just version number
changes, if that's really all that is changing?
3. Why am I downloading these updates when I don't actually have
kdepim installed at all?
I'm all for keeping my system up-to-date, but this seems like such a
waste of time and effort for all involved, more like a $EA or NOP from
6502 days ;-)
