Around 12:04am on Sunday, June 17, 2007 (UK time), Timothy Murphy scrawled:

> You misunderstood me (I think)
> As far as I can see, "yum remove foo" removes foo,
> and also everything that foo depends on.
> Then it removes everything that depends on the things already removed.
> And so ad infinitum.
> I would have thought it would be more logical

> Of course anything that requires foo should be removed.
> But that is a different matter.
