No no... this isn't what he suggested and I wouldn't like it
too. He meant _new_ packages, and some critical ones (like stuff
that's very important or attracts a lot of attention - in the
first group, gcc, egcs, XFree for example, and in the second, E,
gnome, whatever). And third, debian-specific pacakges such as
apt, menu, etc, which will make people cry "oooooooooh how I
wiiiiiiiiish I could use this in my RH system..." ;-)
