Hi all,
     Was unable to find the bug-report page of aptitude hence listing
here. Aptitude should show related/updated or upgraded packages. For
e.g. there is gpg which is there by default and there is gpg2 which is
the newer, better, modularized version.

Now the thing is while gpg is good for server and embedded
architectures gpgv2 is aimed sorely at desktops. Please look at
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GnuPrivacyGuardHowto as well as GNU

 The package is already there in universe, what stops it from jumping
from universe to main,
license issue, modular state, documentation, newness, size or what?

 Looking forward for comments, suggestions,  additions to the same.
