Bug#599185: release-notes: mention apt-mark

Package: release-notes
Severity: normal
Tags: squeeze

The "handle-conflict" section has this text:

To prevent <command>apt-get</command> from removing some packages that were
pulled in through dependencies, you need to manually unmark them as
<emphasis>auto</emphasis> packages.  This includes OpenOffice and Vim for
desktop installs.  <command>apt-get</command> does not provide an interface
for marking or unmarking <emphasis>auto</emphasis> packages, so you will need
to use <command>aptitude</command> for this:

AFAICT the apt-mark command is available in lenny's apt, and can be used
for this.
