Banned packages

Hi,

im wanting to see the list of banned packages but it downloads as an empty .txt file ??? Maybe bad link?

https://www.devuan.org/os/explore

https://pkgmaster.devuan.org/bannedpackages.txt

EDIT: dont know why but geany didnt like the .txt file and wouldnt open it but nano was ok with it. Must be formatted differently?

Re: Banned packages

same with pluma (encoding issues). nano shows some weird line 1 :

^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@unstable,systemd-timesyncd

if you remove this line, it works as expected with any editor. note that "unstable,systemd-timesyncd" in line 1 is also present in last line.

file is saying application binary file ?

~/Downloads $ > file -i bannedpackages.txt
bannedpackages.txt: application/octet-stream; charset=binary

Re: Banned packages

This may be due to some backend changes in the pkginfo function which is still somewhat of a WIP.
