Then, if package files (and not just Hi Lars, A simple question. You mention that you use apt-get in this new testing environment. Would it be useful to allow an apt-get workalike(dpkg/aptitude/wajig)? The Sarge release notes mention that woody->sarge upgrade is best done with aptitude. So if you had tested an woody/stable->sarge/stable, would it not need to use aptitude as recommended by the release notes? Not sure if apt-get will be recommended for the next stable upgrade cycle. Is somebody working on making that so? Anyway thanks for the great new testing software.
