Aptitude Removed from Maverick Meerkat

I was startled today to find that aptitude has been removed from Ubuntu 10.10, Maverick Meerkat. It is still in the repositories, so if you are like me and insist on having the additional capabilities that aptitude affords, you will be able to download it.

This appears to be an official decision by Ubuntu developers:

ubuntu-meta (1.199) maverick; urgency=low

* Remove remaining traces of hppa and lpia.
* Policy version 3.8.4.
* Refreshed dependencies
* Removed aptitude from standard
* Removed tasksel from minimal
