Hi all,

probably everyone knows the bug related to the use of orphans by urpmi (and 

title: 'urpme --auto-orphans' message shouldn't be shown when using rpmdrake'

link: https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=920

as time is over and we can't change this feature, what about using a 
workaround in urpmi? my proposal is to change the current message with someone 
similar to this:

"these packages are orphans. If you are an experienced user and you want to
remove them, you can use "urpme --auto-orphans". Otherwise we discourage the
use of this comand"

is still possible? i need the partecipation of i18n team to update the 
localizations and the approval of the dev team that should commit the new 
package. Please, let me know
