[Catalog-sig] DB format and ChangeLog
Thu, 9 Nov 2000 22:46:37 +0100 (CET)
I have two comments:
- make a readable DB format, no binary pickling solutions. Debian uses
a rfc822 DB with "name: value" entries.
- when I am installing new or updated versions of a package I am always
curious what has changed since the last version (bug fixes, new
features etc.). If the changes are important enough, I want to download
and install the new version. If not, then I wait for the next release.
So there should be an option to download/view only the changelog.
