Feature request base-lts

Not sure if this has been requested in the past but would there be any use in having a base-lts group package?

At the moment you have to load base then install linux-lts [remove linux package]

Or bootstrap pacman then load packages required.

Does not seem much point in loading both kernels, as you have fallback option.

Re: Feature request base-lts

Apart from the burden to maintain base-lts is there a benefit in removing the linux package?

For myself I find it very convenient to have 2 kernels installed - I may do some "experiments" with one kernel knowing I can always rely on the other one.
Also upgrading the 'linux' package is less stressful with a "backup" kernel (the falback image of the upgraded kernel may not always be the answer when the problem is in the kernel itself).

Re: Feature request base-lts

Feature requests get made on a bug tracker, not the forums...    But anyway it would be closed "Won't Implement".
