Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

Using the development series use to be a somewhat risky life, so I tend to give the new packages some days from the moment they appear in the update-manager until I install them in order for the main crasher bugs to be fixed.

It would be great to add the date of the last archive upload into the changelogs, right after the version number that's going to be installed, for example. In this way, people could have more information an valuate how risky each package update could be.

Thanks for this! I will see about getting this changed to "wishlist" as I do agree it would be a nice feature in the update-manager software. If it is not wishlist worthy I will give you the proper site to post this opinion.
