I'll note here that psutils is only used in a2ps. That package in turn has not been updated since 2007. I have used a2ps in the past because it prints out source code in a 2up format nicely, but I have not used it in a few years.

An alternative to a2ps is enscript, which has been stable since 2012.

Consider dropping a2ps and psutils from the book.

Further to my initial comment on -support, Fedora is using 1.23 so this seems to be just a new location, and 1.9 versions are development. But I too have no problem with dropping this.

FWIW, I'd be OK with dropping this - although I've never used it, so take my opinion with a grain of salt. I have used enscript though.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Commented out a2ps and psutils at revision 22889, but did not archive yet.

Marking fixed, but we may want to bring these back.
