[Aptitude-devel] Bug#889924: [aptitude] Feature request - For changelog download command, can acceptable Origins be configurable? Devuan

Package: aptitude
Version: 0.8.7-1
Severity: wishlist

I use aptitude as a Devuan user, but with vanilla aptitude it is not
possible to download changelogs for packages due to the hardcoded origin
check in generic/apt/pkg_changelog.cc:check_valid_origin:


Please can the whitelist be user-configurable?

For reference currently the recommended Devuan repo has no Origin
specified (it used to), but talking on IRC it sounds like they will fix
this if aptitude is changed to allow non-Debian repos as a valid source.

If being user-configurable is too much, presumably just more hardcoding
to allow 'Devuan' variants of what is already present?
