cron-apt vs. unattended-upgrades, Was: APT 0.7 for sid

> How is what you describe different from what cron-apt already does?

I'd suggest looking at the source of unnattended-upgrades. It checks if
the package to be upgraded would trigger a conffile-changed question. If
it does not, the upgrade is done, since it won't need manual
intervention. If it would trigger a question, it won't make the upgrade.

cron-apt does not offer this check.
