Package: aptitude
Version: 0.6.11-1
Severity: minor
Usertags: found-during-book-writing

Dear Maintainer,

the inline documentation for the checkbox "Remove obsolete package files
after downloading new package lists" says "If this option is enabled,
then after every install run, aptitude will delete from the package
cache any package files that can no longer be downloaded from any
archive in sources.list."

Alone the description of the checkbox "after downloading new package
lists" and "after every install run" in the inline documentation are
already inconsistent.

According to my tests, it is correct that autoclean is run "after
downloading new package lists", so the inline documentation should be
corrected accordingly.

seems correct.
