Bug#136725: debian-devel-announce should mention "man apt_preferences"

Package: www.debian.org
Version: N/A; reported 2002-03-03
Severity: normal

http://www.debian.org/releases/testing/  has:

   Read the apt-get(8) and the sources.list(5) manual pages for more

Can this be:

   Read the apt-get(8), the sources.list(5) and the apt_preferences(5) 
   manual pages in for more information.

This makes more people to realize new woody APT capability.

Problem may be that apt_preferences is only available on woody.

Also for network upgrade with APT, I made a script and available on Debian:


It uses "apt-setup" command so it creates right 

  /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/preferences

This or similar script can be mentioned.
