Bug#459810: reorder uploading
I have in my possession the Linux System Administration Handbook. Within is the classical explanation between the merits of rdist and rsync.
It always helps to find the right tool for the job. Remember, apt is not aptitude, apt is not dpkg-sel. Each one serves its purpose.
Serendipity, to be honest, is just one more useless word. It was never meant to mean anything. It was an excuse for a fun story.

Every few weeks I wonder why I don't get those cheery
apt-listchanges messages any more.
It turns out every few weeks I must have hit RET when all along buried
within the question I was being asked was, e.g.,
The following packages will be REMOVED:
apt-file apt-listchanges libapt-pkg-perl python-apt
The following packages will be upgraded:
Yes, I know the correct procedure when greeted with such a message is
to just wait a couple of days before hitting RET.
But now I am starting to wonder, why do packages other than
apt-listchanges seem not so easy to get deleted so often?
Could it be the order in which the dependencies are sent to the
mirrors? Or something about the dependencies themselves.
-o Debug::PkgProblemResolver=True shows
Package python-apt has broken dep on libapt-inst-libc6.6-6-1.1
Considering apt-utils 4 as a solution to python-apt 1
Removing python-apt rather than change libapt-inst-libc6.6-6-1.1
Package libapt-pkg-perl has broken dep on libapt-pkg-libc6.6-6-4.6
Considering apt 10 as a solution to libapt-pkg-perl 1
Removing libapt-pkg-perl rather than change libapt-pkg-libc6.6-6-4.6
Package apt-file has broken dep on libapt-pkg-perl
Considering libapt-pkg-perl 1 as a solution to apt-file 0
Removing apt-file rather than change libapt-pkg-perl
Package apt-listchanges has broken dep on python-apt
Considering python-apt 1 as a solution to apt-listchanges 0
Removing apt-listchanges rather than change python-apt
Anyways, all I know is the order in which you upstream guys push out
your new packages creates a window of a day or two where users are
faced with the above painful decisions.
