A couple of thoughts:

​1. Now that the Google Code project is archived, time to update the web page to point to the new repo?

​2. Is it worth using apt rather than apt-get? Apt claims to improve things in a non-backwards-compatible-way, so this should be approached carefully, but surely wajig also is a tool whose behaviour can gradually be changed (for example, one doesn't expect to use it from sysadmin scripts)?

Some people do use it in scripts. Also, I did want to move it to use
"/usr/bin/apt", but the warning about the non-backwards-compatible
made me put it off. I imagine that's a temporary warming, so will
simply wait.

Not a big deal - but should be easy to fix:

wajig details lios_2.0_all.deb
E: Unable to locate package lios_2.0_all.deb


It is looking at the file name as a package name --

Probably should run this instead:



# dpkg -I lios_2.0_all.deb
