#: ../wrapper.py:163
msgid ""
"finds, downloads, and installs the packages needed to solve the list of deps"

#: ../wrapper.py:201
msgid "Fetch the package specified without resolving deps"

#: ../wrapper.py:141
msgid "Do everything but download and install packages (show deps needed, etc)"

#: ../wrapper.py:203
msgid ""
"Fetch the source package for the specified package without resolving deps"

"deps" is really technobabble that probably is less understandable than a
spelled out "dependencies" to most people. Hence, it really is unsuited to be
used in user-visible messages.

"deps" is also more difficult to translate.

"deps" is also inconsistent with most other messages in anaconda that use the
full word "dependencies".
Comment 1 Christian Rose 2003-09-15 16:17:00 EDT
Mea culpa -- it was up2date, not anaconda.
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2003-09-15 17:02:27 EDT
fixed in cvs, should land in 3.9.28 or so
Comment 3 Matt Jamison 2003-09-16 17:43:28 EDT
confirmed in 3.9.28
