This manual represents the opinion of a single developer.  It has not been
ratified by the Debian project, and individual recommendations made within
should not be taken for the preferences of the Debian project.

Though I think any manual published on debian.org recommending aptitude for
upgrades is a bug that should be fixed.

Well, and this is a page in a wiki about aptitude.  The existence of such a
page is not a recommendation by the Debian project that it should be used.
