This was in my ubuntu-devel folder July 4th. What a
nice holiday gift.
“the latest apt upload (0.6.44.2ubuntu2) to edgy has support for
of automatically installed dependencies” … “Use “apt-get remove –auto-remove”

This is VERY awesome. I get tired of tracking down unknown unneeded
packages. Especially since Debian and Ubuntu are very good about keeping
packages granular, so often there are many small packages rather than one large
package. Details on usage is in

rejoice. Their systems will be cleaner than ever. Much thanks to Michael
Vogt and team.
