pinning packages


Hello !

After apt-get, if listbugs flags a bug and asks whether i still want to install... if i select p to pin the package. it looks like the subsequent question to ask whether i still want to proceed defaults to y while I have seen it defaulting to n...

does anyone know where I can change the default answer to this question?

Also, it looks like pinning after apt listbugs didn't update the preferences file... any reason for that ?

thanks!

Haven't read the manual as I really don't need apt-listbugs for anything further than referance and pinning a pakage.I have only pinned one pakage in a year running sid.
I do understand your question and have been confused by apt-listbugs after pinning too....but,I just read carefully and went ahead,then ran dist-upgrade again.
