[Aptitude-devel] Bug#707320: marked as done (aptitude: implement partially forgetting new packages)

Hey Manuel.

I've seen the new functionality for marking new packages forgotten, but
to be honest, it seems rather a bit unflexible in use (especially when
one wants to mark only a certain set of packages as forgotten).

Have you seen the ideas I've had proposed in #707320? Where the "f"
button would basically be similar to the current semantics (i.e. not
opening a pop-up), but depending on the current selected item, either
forgot single packages, or subtrees, or everything.

I could imagine e.g. the following:
- if a single package under "New" is selected (and f pressed), forgot
  the single package
- if a tree like "Admin section" is selected, forget everything there
- if the whole "New" tree is selected, forget all new packages
- if the cursor is completely outside the New tree (but e.g. under
  updates or so), let f jump to the new tree, or give a popup warning,
  or e.g. give the same pop-up you have now, that allows to ender
