To be improved ...
- performance for layout algorithm can be improved
- we resolve dependency to package name using pyalpm directly now, and this information is lost on the graph
we do not track optdepends nowwe draw optdepends on the graph but not consider them during topology_sort
we need to estimate removable size (bydone
- more information from pacman can be integrated
- search by package name
- show only part of the packages (like
pactree) instead of filtering by levels
