Package: gnome-apt
Version: 0.3.6
Severity: wishlist


First, thank you for making an outstanding front-end to an amazing
tool!  I just started using gnome-apt in the course of introducing Linux
(and Debian) to a newbie, and you have done a really nice job with it.

In order to make the full power of apt available to GUI users, it would
be nice to be able to use the preferences dialog to set apt.conf
configuration options.  This would of course require parsing any
existing apt.conf file, and preferences selected here would be saved in
apt.conf and thus apply to all other front ends- which the user should
probably be warned about.  I think this would add significantly to the
usability of this extremely powerful tool.

Also, a nitpick: it would be nice if doing an update didn't un-select
all of my new packages to install...

Thanks very much,

-Adam P.
