In chapter 10. Documentation and resources on page 532:

Following the release of sarge, the Debian debbugs team has added the ability to track package versions instead of just single packages with the Debian bug tracking system. This has been a feature much requested, which should greatly facilitate the period leading up to an official Debian release.

Details of the added and changed features and commands can be found in the announcement.

Feedback

Mark Gibbs, Network World (28 Nov 2005): This book is unusual in that it is much more than a technical discussion - it delves into the philosophy of the system, explains how someone becomes a recognized Debian developer and details the way that Debian is licensed. That's not to say the book doesn't get technical. It provides a very well-written, soup-to-nuts explanation of how Debian is organized; how to install, configure and modify the system; and how to administer and secure it. Excellent and highly recommended.
