Package: wnpp
Version: N/A; reported 2001-03-30
Severity: wishlist

Contents-*.gz files are very usefull. AFAIR they are generated weekly.

Having to download them manually is not very comfortable.
Why not apt-get install contents-i386 and have it always up-to-date?

In addition, package could be upgraded only when Contents-*.gz file has
really changed (e.g sort both files and diff them or sth. like that)

auto-apt before.

The RFPs are all of the same priority listed at [1].
