Aptitude should have a possibility to edit/add packages' repositories
Status in aptitude package in Ubuntu:
Status in aptitude package in Baltix:
Status in aptitude package in Debian:
Binary package hint: aptitude
Aptitude is a great package manager, but one important thing is missing - a possibility to add/edit packages' repositories (sources.list file or files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ folder).
This possibility exists in the majority of package managers, like synaptic or smartpm, so why aptitude users should exit from aptitude and run "editor /etc/apt/sources.list" manually when they wanna add or edit software repositories ? When Ubuntu 6.06 was released, editing packages repositories in text mode became even harder - user should care not only about sources.list file, but also about files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ folder :(
I think it's not hard to add an editing ability of packages'
repositories in aptitude by showing contents of the files from
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ folder + /etc/apt/sources.list file, letting
user to select wanted entry and then starting command:
editor 'file, which contains user's chosen entry'
