Clear message


This spec is about improvements to the cruft remover, most importantly sharing the quirks/anomalies fixup code between update-manager and cruft-remover.

Release Note



Update-manager performs a cruft cleanup on upgrade, curft-remover is able to do this anytime. Both need to perform two tasks: - identify and cleanup cruf (obsolete packages, auto-removable packages etc) - fix anomalies relative to a fresh install (missing relatime in /etc/fstab) and should share the code that performs those tasks.


You can have subsections that better describe specific parts of the issue.


This section should describe a plan of action (the "how") to implement the changes discussed. Could include subsections like:

UI Changes

No UI changes needed.

Test/Demo Plan

It's important that we are able to test new features, and demonstrate them to users. Use this section to describe a short plan that anybody can follow that demonstrates the feature is working. This can then be used during testing, and to show off after release.

This need not be added or completed until the specification is nearing beta.

Unresolved issues

This should highlight any issues that should be addressed in further specifications, and not problems with the specification itself; since any specification with problems cannot be approved.

BoF agenda and discussion

Use this section to take notes during the BoF; if you keep it in the approved spec, use it for summarising what was discussed and note any options that were rejected.
