Re: Question regarding with-package 5 months ago

From Brendan Desmond to ~chambln/public-inbox

Hi Gregory,

Your explanation makes sense, and I am now seeing the same
behavior you're describing—a deleted package is automatically
removed from `package-selected-packages`. I may have been doing
something silly, and have since wiped my packages and restarted
my Emacs session along with reinstalling all the packages I
specified with `with-package`. Sorry for the false alarm, but
your answer was helpful in furthering my understanding :)

Thank you for your post — I have already replaced `use-package`
in my config with `with-package`. I was not using many features
of the former to begin with, but just as a clean sort of wrapper
for setting up packages. `with-package` seems to suit my needs
nicely.

I am seeing one issue so far, and was wondering if you had any
thoughts on the matter. I used `with-package` to set up a package
I wanted to just try out. I later deleted the package with
`package-delete`, but its name still remains in
`package-selected-packages`.

In hindsight, I should have simply installed this package
manually if I were merely testing it, but what if later on down
