I add

| grep -vE 'html|archive|blfs-full'

to avoid some noise

and use 'grep -i <dependency>'

for obvious reasons, although this may be no necessary.

Embarrassed thanks.

Back to freeze:

You must have seen I've added libvpx and mplayer to be done for 7.8.
Hope it is OK.

Plan to close my tickets today.

We also have git-2.5.1, while book has git-2.5.0, and
ImageMagick-6.9.2-0 is up to date.

Leave git as is, or update to latest?

Is there any other 'hold' to be added to 7.8 that I missed?
