How about logging of some sort? I'm frequently encountering problems
now where I don't understand why there's a conflict or why something is
being required. I attribute this to a larger network of packages and
dependencies, and handling more versions of software. Mostly the
information I'm looking for is a path of requirements -- what caused
what else to be required, and in what order. I see that
"VersionConflict / XXX add more info" message a lot too, so that's the
XXX I'd like to see fixed.
I can submit a patch for some of this if you can advise how you'd like
to see that work. The logging module? Just a verbose or debug mode of
some sort? Though post-mortem why-did-I-get-this-conflict information
would be really nice too, which would imply tracking the information all
the time instead of just in a debugging mode.
