Title: rpm -q --whatrecommends foobar

openSUSE-11.2: Rejected by Stephan Kulow (coolo)
reject date: 2008-12-11 13:46:45
reject reason: this would be useless for debugging as only half the
cases why a package is installed is known to rpm
Requester: Desirable

+ openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
+ Priority
+ Requester: Important

Requested by: Stephan Binner (beineri)
Product Manager: Michael Loeffler (sprudel24)
Project Manager: (Novell)
Partner organization:

For debugging purporses why a package is installed it would be nice to
have a "--whatrecommends" query option for rpm and not only "--

+ Discussion:
+ #1: Bernhard Wiedemann (bmwiedemann) (2011-01-29 14:14:00)
+ This would be quite useful. If it can not be done in rpm, maybe zypper
+ would be an appropriate place.
