Package: aptitude
Version: 0.8.5-1
Severity: wishlist
File: /usr/share/man/man8/aptitude-curses.8.gz

Man page says

    /etc/apt/apt.conf, /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/*, ~/.aptitude/config
           The configuration files for aptitude.  ~/.aptitude/config overrides
           /etc/apt/apt.conf. See apt.conf(5) for documentation of the format
           and contents of these files.

it should also say if it overrides /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/* and if
overrides means "is read after" or "is only read instead of".
