Currently it comes with the following main features: . - Programming language independent D-Bus interface, which allows to write clients in several languages - Runs only if required (D-Bus activation) - Fine grained privilege management using PolicyKit, e.g. allowing all desktop user to query for updates without entering a password - Support for media changes during installation from DVD/CDROM - Support for debconf (Debian's package configuration system) - Support for attaching a terminal to the underlying dpkg call The package itself is based on the Ubuntu one, with some changes: - Converted the package to 3.0 (quilt) source format - Converted the package from cdbs to debhelper 7 - Converted debian/copyright to DEP-5 format - Rebased against current trunk of aptdaemon Sebastian, could we get a 0.11 release tomorrow; with the state of the current trunk and the attached patch for Python 2.5 support? This would be helpful; as I would like to upload the package tomorrow. -- Julian Andres Klode - Debian Developer, Ubuntu Member See http://wiki.debian.org/JulianAndresKlode and http://jak-linux.org/.
