Re: setup graphical chooser : how to list orphaned packages ?

This is very common. Suppose you have package A installed, which
requires B. Package B gets obsoleted by C. But A still requires B
until someone (usually the maintainer of A) changes this to make A
require C instead.
Maybe a column showing what installed packages are depending on B and a
column showing the dependencies for package A would be nice? It would
help clear the confusion anyway.
the cygcheck-dep package can provide dependencies information,
I do not see the need for setup to do it
