Well it is that or apt by default is configured to install recommended software.

Okay, I confirm that apt is configured to install recommended packages by default.

EchedeyLR renamed this task from Unar added as a dependence of unrar-free to Unar installed with unrar-free.Sun, Nov 24, 04:59

Yes, unrar-free recommends unar.

What is the issue with that?

It started of whatever I thought it was an issue and finished as a question or request about the possibility to let people choose if "install recommends" should be enabled or disabled by default.

There are many, many, MANY ways you can break your system, by changing how its configuration to behave differently from what it did when initially installed.

I disagree that reconfiguration to suppress default package relation lack any particularly verbose documentation in this regard.

Thanks for filing issues. This one, however, I am closing as a non-issue.

Thank you for the explanation. Anyways, I recognize again I confused the default behavior of suggested packages with recommended packages.
