Re: digikam upgrade: plugins to be remove

BTW, I just discovered that aptitude has recently learned a nifty new

p digikam Conflicts digikamimageplugins
This is really useful to figure out what is going on with complicated
dependency issues. It is currently only available to Sid users, though
(aptitude version 0.4.5.3 or higher).
Wonderful new features! I just noticed that 0.4.5.4-1 is now available
in Testing. Going to upgrade right away.
Now, how do I know why these removals are necessary? And how do I find out
if I should go ahead with the upgrade since, maybe the new package has the
two packages built-in now?
This information is often included in the package description. For
digikam you can find this:
"All plugins previously provided by the digikamimageplugins package are
now included in this package."
Ah, that clears up that bit.
Failing that, you can download and read the changelog of the package
before installing or upgrading.
