A suggestion for an additional confirmation step in "makesb" script:
example:

This step is always a YES, it would be good to have the optional steps.

Acually when I tried it here I didn't get the "(default=all)" option on my system but then I have devel loaded
so I am using apacman and will research difference with this.

However I get the behaviour without devel_17.sb loaded so makesb uses pacman with --noconfirm.

I guess I could create something like /etc/makesb.conf

where you could define a variable called confirm and then get your desired behaviour.

I think default should be noconfirm though

ok, i see
Sometimes confirmation is useful, manage it anyway you like.
