that's still manually. that's yet another command I have to type.

I know it can be done. but it's not been implemented here yet. I
suppose I can look into it... but that could take a while, if you want
it now... patches to CPANPLUS::Dist::Arch are welcome >:) .

While I'm at it I'm going to make it automagically flag your packages
out of date so I don't have to do that anymore either.

shame that people have to ruin something like that. Have a queue
delete button that will delete the files after like a week or
something. Then have an interface that allows you to reject deletions
and block them from the queue... or... you could just have it where it
allows you to approve each one. It would at least save us all from

I notice you didn't respond to the idea that aur rejects them
instead... since aur will reject a package I don't own if it's on aur.
why not just reject any package that's in any of the other repo's for
the same reason.

It wasn't meant to be. If someone eventually decides to talk to me
about it, I'll consider it at that time. I'm not asking, it wasn't a
serious statement. AUR actually works well enough for me to contribute
in what I believe is a meaningful manner. AUR is great.
