Updating apt get repositories 2016 powered by skadate dating software
apt provides other command options to override decisions made by apt-get's conflict resolution system.
One option is to force a particular version of a package.
Another such distinction is remote repository retrieval of packages.
The apt package is of "important" priority in all current Debian releases, and is therefore included in a default Debian installation.
The original effort that led to the apt-get program was the dselect replacement project known by its codename deity.
This project was commissioned by Brian White, the Debian Release Manager at the time.
The 'Deity Creation Team' mailing list archives include only the major highlights.
The Deity name was abandoned as the official name for the project due to concerns over the religious nature of the name.
