[Bug 582361] Re: apt-get doesn't mention dist-upgrade



At the moment I do not believe there is a plan for a 3rd Edition of the
Lucid Manual. Which is why it was deferred until the maverick manual.

In addition there was not time to fix this with the lucid e2 deadline.

I hope this answers your question.

Feel free to add additional comments, if you have further views.
