NAME

       cupt_vs_apt - overview of things Cupt and APT differ in

ADVANTAGES

   Core
       ·   pins can be specified also by source package

       ·   correctness of APT options is checked

   Search
       ·   ’search’ command searches all versions of package, not policy or
           installed ones

       ·   ’search’ command can search case-sensitively (’--case-sensitive’
           switch)

   Show
       ·   ’show’ command can show release description (’--with-release-info’
           switch)

       ·   ’/<distribution’ and ’=<version>’ suffixes can be used with
           ’depends’ and ’rdepends’ commands

   Managing packages
       ·   ’satisfy’ command is present

       ·   two types of multi-case problem resolvers available (see --resolver
           in cupt(1))

       ·   worker passes ’--force-*’ options to dpkg only when really needed,
           not always

   Downloading
       ·   LZMA-compressed index files are supported.

       ·   HTTP redirects can be followed (see acquire::http::allow-redirects
           in cupt(1))

DISADVANTAGES

       ·   working with source packages is not yet implemented

       ·   translated descriptions are not yet implemented

       ·   cdrom URI type is not handled

DIFFERENT BEHAVIOR

   Configuration
       ·   ’apt::cache::allversions’ defaults to 0, not 1 as in apt-cache

       ·   to explicitly disable proxy, set
           ’acquire::<protocol>::[<host::]proxy’ to "", not to "DIRECT"

       ·   ’acquire::<protocol>::[<host>::]proxy’ options take precedence over
           "<protocol>_proxy" shell variables

       ·   ’gpgv::trustedkeyring’ defaults to ’/var/lib/cupt/trusted.gpg’
