** Description changed:

  Please backport  aptitude (main) from quantal to
  Reason for the backport:
  aptitude 0.6.6 as provided with precise does not support multiarch properly. This means that if multiarch is used, aptitude cannot be used properly, and is potentially dangeous because it can suggest bogus package uninstalls. as packaged with quantal solves this problem.
  Mark off items in the checklist [X] as you test them, but please leave the checklist so that backporters can quickly evaluate the state of testing.
  You can test-build the backport in your PPA with backportpackage:
  $ backportpackage -u ppa:<lp username>/<ppa name> -s quantal -d precise aptitude
  * precise:
  [X] Package builds without modification
   - package requires libapt-pkg4.12 >= 0.9.3, precise only provides 0.8.16
     I also did a no-change backport of apt ( from quantal, after which
     the package built without modification, and all packages installed and ran properly.
  [X] aptitude-doc-en installs cleanly and runs
  [X] aptitude-dbg installs cleanly and runs
  [X] aptitude-doc-fi installs cleanly and runs
  [X] aptitude-doc-ja installs cleanly and runs
  [X] aptitude-common installs cleanly and runs
  [X] aptitude installs cleanly and runs
  [X] aptitude-doc-fr installs cleanly and runs
  [X] aptitude-doc-it installs cleanly and runs
  [X] aptitude-doc-es installs cleanly and runs
  [X] aptitude-doc-cs installs cleanly and runs
  Reverse dependencies:
  The following reverse-dependencies need to be tested against the new version of aptitude. For reverse-build-dependencies (-Indep), please test that the package still builds against the new aptitude. For reverse-dependencies, please test that the version of the package currently in the release still works with the new aptitude installed. Reverse- Recommends, Suggests, and Enhances don't need to be tested, and are listed for completeness-sake.
