i'm not complaining, but just wondering, is it common to end up with a orphaned frontend to apt, i do hope that aptitude wont be dumped!

last time i checked gnome-apt, there hadn't been changes in ages!, last change was to compile it on some new libapt.. 

but this brings even more pressure to aptitude makers, they should now improve aptitude with the advantages of console-apt, and if possible update the version in potato... (it's too late already, but i think for the next update to potato =)

we really need an easy to use interface to apt, on console. AND DONT SAY APT-GET, it's easy for most of us, but not for the ones who have just moved to Debian, we shouldn't increase the load on theyre shoulders. they have a LOT to learn without learning how to use apt-get...
My Two cents, now everyone send me yours, i'll be rich!
