Bug#606513: release-notes: Incorrect apt config file path

Package: release-notes
Severity: normal

*** Please type your report below this line ***

In the Ix86 version of the Squeeze Release Notes (at least) at http://www.debian.org/releases/testing/i386/release-notes/, several references are made to changing apt config options. The user is told that they can change these options in /etc/apt/apt.conf. But no such file exists on my Lenny system, and neither does it on that of a friend running Syd, so chances are it doesn't in Squeeze either.

Instead, there is /etc/apt/apt.conf.d which contains a number of files but nowhere obvious to specify the suggested directives.

I've yet to read the entire document, but have found this problem in chapters 2 and 4. In particular, I'd like to disable the apparently new behaviour of automatically installing recommended packages, but I don't know where this directive should be specified.
