aptitude removals (was Re: APT 0.7 for sid)
FWIW, I thought that you acknowledged that this problem was reported in
#299009 (over 25 months ago). I'm mentioning this because I believe this
issue is/was the main reason for "anti-aptitudism".
Apparently there have been bugs in this for years and no-one reported
them until they caused trouble for the d-i team several months ago.
They should be fixed in stable's aptitude now, and I would appreciate
bug reports on any transition problems that remain.
Anyway, if it's resolved, I'll have to give aptitude a try. I second
Michael in thanking you for "bringing this feature at the right place".
