Yes I can...
All the discussion started about the following sentence in section 4.4.6
of the Squeeze Release Notes:
The upgrade process for other releases recommended the use of
aptitude for the upgrade.
Some people said that as the past tense was used, the recommendation
to use aptitude for upgrade to older releases was no more valid.
The section 4.2 of the same document clearly shows that this is not true:
Please follow the instructions in the Release Notes for Debian
GNU/Linux 5.0 to upgrade to 5.0 first.
And in the Release Notes for Debian 5.0, section 4.5, you find:
The recommended way to upgrade from previous Debian GNU/Linux releases
is to use the package management tool aptitude.
I hope this is clear enough.
