adept_updater > how to get the details of the update ?


Hi

It's been annoying me for a long time now : although adept is really good at keeping the system up-to-date, I can't get to know what bug is going to be fixed or what feature is going to be added when I launch adept_updater...

I'm convinced there must be some changelog for each update somewhere, but can I access it from adept ? Does anybody knows a way ?

There's a "Developer Changelog" tab in the "details" view but it's desperately empty every time.

cheers,

cbonar

Well, I've it installed already (just in case adept requires it to display the changelog), but before I have the opportunity to test it on the command line, can you tell me if you could observe there was always a changelog in apt with this tool ?

ps : I've tested all the updates today, and I've noticed that some (very few) times the changelog was printed in adept. Some other (very few) times, there is a 'URL not found'-like message, and the rest of the time, it's only a blank page.

-> would that mean that the changelog is simply not set on the repository ?
