next next next step
an hour ago I received an email from my AM who considers my packages to be in good shape; that means that the "Tasks and Skills Check" part of my NM process is finished. & wouter has also already sent the NM report mail including his recommendation to accept me as a DD to debian-newmaint! so only FD review, DAM review, & account creation are lying ahead of me. I'm indeed quite happy tonight :)

if you'd like to have birra moretti & don't want to go to italy — I know a supermarket in london where you can get it.

health & weather
smoking outside of pubs in the cold english rain is a PITA.

aptitude & recommends
due to the latest changes in apt (which installs packages marked as Recommends: by default since 0.7.7) aptitude — even if "Install recommended packages automatically" is not checked in aptitude's options dialog — pulls in recommended packages just like apt-get, whether called from the command line or interactively; cf. also #448561. the fix to keep both apt-get & aptitude from installing recommended packages is something like:
$ cat /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/15recommends
        Install-Recommends "false";
(also very useful for (p|cow)builder where installing recommended packages in the chroot is just wrong & takes a long time; cf. also #448562.)

big mistake: I looked out of the window. & since the temperature has fallen to 0°C the falling snow doesn't melt anymore, instead it pollutes the whole scenery. blinds closed again.
