New blog post: APT Patterns

If you have ever used aptitude a bit more extensively on the command-line, you’ll probably have come across its patterns. This week I spent some time implementing (some) patterns for apt, so you do not need aptitude for that, and I want to let you in on the details of this merge request !74.

@juliank Cool to see some of aptitude's features making their way into apt. Any chance of the "why" command bring implemented? That's pretty much the only thing I still use aptitude for.


@jamessan can you reverse engineer it? I always feel like 'why' is super hard to implement.
