Bug Description

Binary package hint: apt

The apt cron job does not fetch translated package descriptions in maverick. The LANG environment is used by default and for the cron job that is C.

This appears to work fine in lucid, so only a maverick regression!

apt (0.8.3ubuntu6) maverick; urgency=low

  [ Michael Vogt ]
  * debian/apt.cron.daily:
    - source /etc/default/locale (if available) so that the
      apt-get update cron job fetches the right translated package
      descriptions (LP: #652951)

  [ David Kalnischkies ]
  * apt-pkg/depcache.cc:
    - do not check endpointer packages instead of only those which prevented
      NeverAutoRemove settings from having an effect (Closes: #598452)
  * cmdline/apt-cache.cc:
    - use the TranslatedDescription for searching and not the first
      available one as it is maybe not an expected language (Closes: #597925)
