Package: aptitude-doc-en
Version: 0.7.8-1
Severity: normal

Downgrades are not mentioned at all in Section "Costs in the
interactive dependency resolver" of the aptitude manual. Since
they are not supported by Debian, one has the impression that
they cannot be proposed, while they can be proposed in practice.

In particular, it should be documented where they appear in Table 2.2
on cost levels.
