Could you please drop or replace https://packages.debian.org/stretch/rar since nonfree?


#6

For libre choices we have either unrar-free or unar.

Unar supports more recent versions of the format, but is larger and has more deps.

https://packages.debian.org/stretch/unrar-free

https://packages.debian.org/stretch/unar

#8

unrar-free is redundant because it supports a smaller feature-set of unar
