[Aptitude-devel] Bug#788946: show Recommendations in /var/log/aptitude

Package: aptitude
Severity: wishlist

It would be very nice, if aptitude could distinguish between
"DEPENDENCIES" and "RECOMMENDATIONS" in the log file. This
could help to get rid of unwanted packages later.

I have seen it way too often that a recommended package
stays forever, even if the package that asked for it has
been purged.

Thanx in advance
