Auto install packages?


#1

I would like to know why the client do not ask for the necessary package, and install them without question or warning.
I follow the instruction of the mail :

When running the Python client (installation directions [1]), be sure to specify the --server argument as shown below:
  git clone https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt
  cd letsencrypt
  ./letsencrypt-auto --server \
      https://acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org/directory --help

–help is for help, no ?

So why install all this automatically ? especially cpp and gcc, without warning …

root@myserver:/mypath/letsencrypt# ./letsencrypt-auto --server https://acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org/directory --help

I’m not against the need of those files, but installing without a warning, it’s not really secure, especially with the --help parameter.
Any explanation ?

Thank you
