Re: 1.2.2 release in the near future

Message Hello Gunnar!

I had another idea some days ago, and it came back to me now that you've committed that.

How about using the package names directly, instead of parsing the logfile?

I'd suggest changing the apt configuration, but not to call something *after* dpkg, but
*instead*:
   # apt-config dump | grep dpkg
   ...
   Dir::Bin::dpkg "/usr/bin/dpkg";

Just call some shell script that commits /etc before and after the _real_ dpkg run!
It could check whether the parent is apt, so that normal commandline use wouldn't incur
the overhead.

This would allow to directly use the package names that are given to dpkg; so a "apt-get
dist-upgrade" would be split into several commits, one per dpkg run.

How about that?


Regards,

Phil
