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


Ok, disappointing, but there's limited resources, I understand. I did
file this only 3 months ago :) In fact I'm pretty sure I filed this via
the bug spreadsheet before then and when I asked how I could get better
visibility was told (some time later) to file in launchpad. Might want
to nail down those processes for the next release. I'm less motivated to
file bugs if they're going to get ignored :(
