Debian's Advanced Packaging Tool with RPM support
A port of Debian's APT tools for RPM based distributions,
or at least for Conectiva. It provides the apt-get utility that
provides a simpler, safer way to install and upgrade packages.
APT features complete installation ordering, multiple source
capability and several other unique features.

This package is still under development.

- tests:
  + Enhanced to be able to work with test packages containing some files.
    (This will be useful for testing the work with large RPM archives.)
  + Shortened the run time of apt-xxtra-heavy-load-checkinstall.
  + Shortened the run time of other *-checkinstall scripts
    (by shortening the the test with zillion packages).
Aug. 3, 2022 Ivan Zakharyaschev 0.5.15lorg2-alt81
- Fixed bad behavior when satisfying "Conflicts" or "Obsoletes" dependencies
  (discovered in ALT#42415), namely:
  + "Obsoletes" causing the deletion of its "virtual" targets (i.e.,
    providing packages) whereas this behavior is expected for Conflicts only;
  + versioned "Conflicts" (or "Obsoletes") causing the deletion of packages
    with non-matching version.
- Enriched the output of Debug::pkgMarkInstall with the versions of
  the dependency targets and the targets being considered during the search.
- Complemented it with new options (Debug::pkgMarkAllCalls,
  Debug::pkgMarkShallow) -- to understand better why the result of
  resolving a broken dep is unexpected in some cases.
June 2, 2022 Ivan Zakharyaschev 0.5.15lorg2-alt80
- Fixed the new compilation warnings by simplifying the ALT-specific code
  in (AllTargets) from 0.5.15lorg2-alt31. (Discovered by gcc12.)
