How long? Maybe it stops doing so tomorrow?

I am perfectly fine with "installs". Thats what it does up to do today. 
Since Lenny says since then, but past tense is IMHO misleading since apt-
get still does it. Of course I can write:

apt-get has installed recommended packages since Lenny. It still installs 
recommended packages in Squeeze. It is likely that it will install 
recommended packages in Wheezy. And heck it might even do that in Wheezy 

Now seriously, I prefer the one sentence version of it with "installs".
