Bug Description

Binary package hint: aptitude

aptitude changelogs 404 when the source is in a different component to the binary package

eg:

sarah@LongPointyStick:~$ aptitude changelog knode
Ign ChangeLog of knode
E: Couldn't fetch URL http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/changelogs/pool/universe/k/kdepim/kdepim_3.5.7enterprise20070907-0ubuntu2/changelog
E: Couldn't find a changelog for knode

This is because the kdepim source is in main, not universe.

To fix this, the section needs to be for the source package, not the binary package

This also affects adept (separate bug filed).

Thanks!

Ow. I really dislike forward duping of bugs because it throws away one of the few incentives for filing bugs - credit. I filed #50765 bug way back in 2006 and now it has duplicated on a bug from 2007. I have even been updating #50765 over those years. This bug on the face of it doesn't appear to contain substantially more information.

These are all very small points though but bug filing is tiring process with surprisingly little pay off.
