15 In my opinion, it's safe to ignore deps on glibc and gcc at this time, I
16 personally don't ignore any other deps. On of my long term goals is to
17 remove as much as humanly possible from the system set and replace it
18 with the packages.default concept. I can't say we are far enough to
19 actually do this yet, but that's why it's a long term goal.
