After that, it maintains a list of packages that you want to have installed on your system. It uses this list to detect packages that have been installed only because other packages depended on them. If one of these dependencies changes, debfoster will take notice, and ask if you want to remove the old package.
This helps you to maintain a clean Debian install, without old (mainly library) packages lying around that aren't used any more.
dep maintains a list of packages which are explicitly requested and updates that list every time it's run. It'll remove packages that are no longer present or have become a dependency and it will ask about new packages and packages that are no longer a dependency. If you find any bugs or have suggestion/improvements, mail them to Wessel Dankers <firstname.lastname@example.org>
