None of the dependencies depend on which. The current package will not work properly if 'which' is not installed.

Instead of depending on 'sh' and 'which', this package could depend on 'bash' and replace occurences of which with 'type -p'.

Additional info:
* package version(s): 1.1.3-3
This task depends upon

The recent discussion (starting 2019-01-21) on arch-dev-public with subject 'minimal base system' highlighted that the base group is a convenience install helper and that not all packages in 'base' are expected to be installed. But OK, I'll make sure to keep which installed until a 'base-system' meta-package is introduced.
