But this relation is not reflexive.Just because program A is
on program B being present, it does not mean that there are not
B other than program A. meld is a good example that is very useful on
its own. Why should yum remove it when A is removed.
Just in case anyone is still confused, that's not what the thread was
Mikkel and Rahul have pointed out that the redundancy is for
backwards compatibility, but I find I'm not sure which is the legacy
The man pages seem to focus more on remove, whereas yum --help does
not mention remove the remove alias at all. And there is not
"grouperase" corresponding to "groupremove"
If there is a bug here, would it be the inconsistency between the --
help option and the man pages, and the lack of deprecation notice for
the legacy command? (Or conversely, the explicit mention that the
alias is there for backwards- or cross-compatibility?)
