Dear Andreas,

Thank you very much, this is great! I really appreciate it. I was really happy to see that Gnuastro is packaged in OpenSUSE also.

I understand that the `--build-deps-only' option will only build the dependencies based on the information that is in the repository. This is an interesting solution.

It would be good if for `zypper', we follow the same format that we have done for the other package managers: provide the command to install all the dependencies, not Gnuastro itself. In this way, when a dependency is added (or possibly removed), we can easily correct the respective command for all the package managers. Therefore, we don't have to ask users of a package manager to wait until the change has been propagated there.

In this section, during the introduction text, we have explained that Gnuastro is already packaged in some package managers (for example OpenSUSE, Debian, Homebrew), but we haven't actually mentioned them there.

Your patch was a good demonstration that its good to also give a link to Gnuastro's page on the package managers. Then the readers can check and see that if it is indeed the most recent version, and if so, they don't have to build from the tarball.

So if you could kindly correct the command to describe installing the dependencies, I will gratefully merge it into the main repo.

For those package managers that have packaged Gnuastro, I will add a line after the command with a link to Gnuastro's page on the respective repo. You can do this already for `zypper' with the new patch.

Thank you very much,
