> I don't understand why you seem to be upset about this ... a potentially useful suggestion always makes people think about it, soliciting replies. What's the point to suggest something when nobody, who disagrees, may reply?
> I am very interested in seeing improved ways of upgrading OpenBSD implemented, I just don't think that such a list of old libraries is doing much good towards that goal. That is, unless you can give a practical example how OBSD-user XY should conduct an upgrade with this list in mind that would answer most of my many "What if...?" and "It is likely that..." concerns I have about this, I will probably not change my opinion here.
My original post was simply to point out the issue and ask if anyone knew for sure if this stuff could be removed without breaking the core code. I asked a simple question. That's all - I wasn't complaining. I was just asking. As an aside, I made a small suggestion.
I wasn't expecting the accusations that I was doing it all wrong ("you should do a fresh install..."), and I wasn't expecting to get sidetracked on the issue of third party code installation and lots of other stuff that really had nothing to do with what I was asking.
The subject of the original issue did not upset me. Being told stuff I already know and in fact had already pointed out (like "you can't tell if a library is still being used so it isn't deleted by default"), and going on about making packages and stuff did sort of annoy me, and was completely missing the point.
