I will review my observation of all of this. It was supposed to be something that showed with *my* distributions had prereqs of *my* software that were behind.
I had no idea that it would cause such a furor.
If my WiringPi::API software had issues, why shouldn't I know which other of my dists have that outdated versions of it?
It's not like it auto-updates or something.
This distribution simply *informs* you what is out of date. What's the problem with that?
I should repeat again that the default shows the author's distributions along with their own software that is out of date. You have to go out of your way to see a full blown list of all prereqs outside of one author's scope.
