I wrote a formula and ran
brew audit --new-formula and was a little surprised by some of the suggestions.
- Formulae should not have [:recommended] dependencies.
Really? Why not? These are documented in the Homebrew Cookbook and there’s no commentary about avoiding them.
This complaint was added in May by @commitay.
- Formulae should not have an unstable spec
I think it is complaining that I specified
head. Again, this is in the Cookbook with no warning against using it. This was added recently, also by @commitay, so there’s probably a discussion going on that I missed.
Both of these features are valuable to me and I don’t have any intention to remove them from the formula.
