botch-remove-virtual-disjunctions(1) remove virtual dependency disjunctions


botch-remove-virtual-disjunctions [options] inPackages inSources outPackages outSources


For binary packages: remove virtual packages from disjunctions with real packages.

For source packages: remove all but the first alternative of disjunctions just as sbuild does it. This is useful to emulate sbuild behaviour with dependency solvers like dose3 and aspcud which do not respect the order of dependency disjunctions.

This program is meant to modify a set of Packages and Sources files. If you only want to modify one, specify /dev/null as input and output for the one you do not want in the command line arguments.


Also remove all but the first alternative from binary packages. This applies the same algorithm to binary packages as is applied to source packages.
