jbw added a comment to T1084: nuitka : Depends: base-files (>= 11) but 10.1pureos7 is installed.

I have not been able to use nuitka at all because the only version available in byzantium depends on a too-new version of base-files.

jbw added a comment to T155: apt-file reports that the cache is empty.

What I'm wondering is: why isn't the necessary data automatically generated at package build time and included as a file (perhaps named PACKAGE.contents) in the .deb file? Then to build the Contents file for a repo would just involve scanning through all the .deb files and extracting the .contents file from each and then concatenating them. I don't understand the Debian package build system well enough to know why it doesn't work this way.

jbw added a comment to T638: repo.puri.sm should deliver Contents files to apt.

[Update: I now see that this is T155. Possibly this should be marked as a duplicate of that? I don't yet know how to do that.]
