(DISCLAIMER: Excuse my French, I'm royally pissed.)

Okay, I have now wasted a whole bloody day to search for documentation which explains the options in synaptic.conf and/or the "internal settings".

Result: None, nix, nada, zilch.
There's literally a fucking TON of "beginners guides" available which all explain exactly the same, i.e. how to select packages, install and remove them, add package sources etc.

But no documentation worth the name. None at all.

So, could anybody please, PLEASE (with sugar on top) point me to where I could find an explanation of synaptic.conf?
