Re: setup graphical chooser : how to list orphaned packages ?

Yes.  An orphaned package is one that is installed on your system, but
not available in any version from setup.  An obsolete package is one
that still exists (usually as an empty package) both in setup and on
your system in order to provide a dependency (usually for older packages
that still refer to the obsolete package name until they can get
rebuilt).
