Mark the package as a dependency.
This can be useful if you as the user don't need a specific package. The package stays installed on the system, but will be removed when remove command along with clean_requirements_on_remove configuration option set to True is executed.
You should use this operation instead of remove command if you're not sure whether the package is a requirement of other user installed package on the system.
Mark the package as a weak dependency.
Mark the package as installed by the group defined in group-id argument.
This can be useful if any package was installed as a dependency or the user and is desired to be protected and handled as a group member like during group remove command.
