Package: aptitude
Version: 0.7.4-1
Severity: wishlist

# aptitude --download-only install $@
[ Download Only Mode. No installations etc. will actually be performed.] <- Please
add a line like that to the output, else the user worries that maybe
--download-only was ignored and the following will really take place:
The following NEW packages will be installed: ...
The following packages will be upgraded: ...
The following packages are RECOMMENDED but will NOT be installed: ...
The following packages are SUGGESTED but will NOT be installed: ...
1 packages upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 4 not upgraded.
Need to get 4,123 kB of archives. After unpacking 2,084 kB will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?]
