Yes, that's what I did. I found that this laptop had it installed
last November, but the other laptop hasn't it. And my small server
got it in January. But the logs do not show if it was an automated
install because of some deps, or manual. My guess is, automatic
(because of the different dates).
For me to install it manually, it would be because someone would
have mentioned it here, but I found no reference to it.
It's never been installed on my system, so perhaps it got hauled in
on yours if you allowed recommends or something like that.
I certainly allow recommends, yes, on all my machines.
This laptop is heavy weight to carry, so I rarely use it. Only when I
move somewhere for days, otherwise I carry my tiny laptop instead.
Thus if I tested a command I would use the desktop machine or the tiny
laptop, but not this big laptop. But it was this big laptop which got
the plugin installed, which is why I think it was something automatic.
It seems odd that there is apparently no way to tell when and how a
package was installed. It seems like that would be a basic audit
requirement. Kind of like sudo can let you see who did what.
