Yes, that was clear.
Thanks a lot for your quick reply.
Let me rephrase the question, though: do you happen to know whether the
bug is already present in aptitude/0.6.8-1?
Does anyone else know?

These are indeed good reasons for your "found" command.
The rationale behind my question is instead the following doubt: what
if I pin aptitude to version 0.6.8-1? Is it useful to avoid being hit
by this bug or is it totally useless?
The BTS version tracking currently sees this bug as found in
Hence, as far as apt-listbugs can tell, the upgrade from
aptitude/0.6.8-1 to aptitude/0.6.8.1-1 would introduce this bug into my
testing boxes: for this reason, apt-listbugs offered me to pin aptitude
to the currently installed version (0.6.8-1)...
If we know that the bug is already present in version 0.6.8-1, then we
should add that version to the list of "found" versions in the BTS, so
that apt-listbugs knows that there's no point in preventing the
0.6.8-1 -> 0.6.8.1-1 upgrade (the bug is already present in the boxes
having aptitude/0.6.8-1 installed).
I hope this clarifies the reason why I am asking.
Thanks for your time!
New GnuPG key, see the transition document!
