redundant updating of packages
Binary package hint: kde
Hi! I noticed today the Software Updates applet suggested some 87 updates, and I was curious to see what changed. I was surprised to notice that a full 28 of these were KDE packages that were updated from version 4:3.5.6-0ubuntu4 to 4:3.5.6-0ubuntu5. The only change was:
* Add kubuntu_
based on http://
Now what I don't understand is why I have to re-download all those packages, including obviously unrelated things like Kate and Konsole and Kprint. I'm not sure, but I think it led to reinstalling pretty much everything I have from KDE. Not only it's annoying, having to download 17 MB instead of at most one, but it's a burden on the servers, too.
I think there should be a way to make updates and affect the minimum number of packages.
