Feature changed by: Ján Kupec (jkupec)
Feature #309579, revision 2
Title: Dependency tree in zypper summary

Requested by: Ján Kupec (jkupec)
Partner organization:

Visualize dependencies of packages (from the installation summary or
given on command line) using colored (by type of dependency -
recommends, requires, etc) ASCII tree/graph.
The feature can be enabled in the info command (zypper info --dep-tree
package) and in the installation summary prompt (in which case it would
show the graph from the requested packages via all the to-be-installed
ones, ending with the installed ones).
This feature is meant to be kept simple, and leave more complex
analysis to other tools (FATE 309572).

+ References:
+ fate #309572

Business case (Partner benefit): Visualization of package dependencies in a tree makes it
easier for packagers to spot incorrect/unneeded dependencies and manage
systems, save space, or analyze dependency problems for administrators
and users.
