Hello, Daniel. I've submitted bug 497206 for aptitude with a patch attached almost two years ago. It's a new feature, to allow packages to be grouped by source. It's usually easier to upgrade all packages from the same source, without having to look for (and sometimes guess) what are the other packages from that given source package. At that time, I've got some feedback (my first implementation required a change to apt), and have responded with another patch. I've been missing some aptitude upgrades or rebuilding it ever since. This is a simple patch, since it looks like very much other code already in aptitude to group packages by other criteria. I know aptitude has lots of reported bugs and maintaining it must really take a lot of time. I would like to know what I can do to help get this merged. Unfortunately, I cannot commit to co-maintain aptitude. But I could help fixing any bugs that arise from my patch and those come to my knowledge (perhaps, I should subscribe for the aptitude bug list for a while). At last, I would like to thank you for developing and maintaining this great software. Cheers, Cascardo.
