I have installed on my system both python25 and python26 using Macports. Now I want to uninstall python25 and all the py25-* packages with no real dependents. Unfortunately, when I do
port dependents python25
I get a long list of dependents including things like mercurial and bzr. When I do
port info mercurial
I see that mercurial depends on python26. I know I can force the removal of python25 by
port uninstall -f python25
but I was wondering if there is a way to let Macports know that mercurial is no longer dependent on python25.
