Bug#599195: release-notes: sort by install size in aptitude is available in lenny

Package: release-notes
Severity: normal
Tags: squeeze

You can list packages that take up most of the disk space with
<systemitem role="package">aptitude</systemitem>.  Start
<command>aptitude</command> in <quote>visual mode</quote>,
select <menuchoice><guimenu>Views</guimenu><guimenuitem>New Flat Package
List</guimenuitem></menuchoice>, press <keycap>l</keycap> and enter
<literal>~i</literal>, press <keycap>S</keycap> and enter
<literal>~installsize</literal>, then it will give you nice list to work
with.  Doing this after upgrading <systemitem
role="package">aptitude</systemitem> should give you access to this new

The last sentence seems superfluous, the suggested commands work fine
with lenny's aptitude, afaict.
