Additional Software Packages

Description

I've started a Tails with persistence built from our topic branch, started Synaptic, which showed me its "upgradable" screen. Two packages were listed there: tor and tor-geoipdb. I felt encouraged to accept Synaptic's proposal so I clicked "Mark All Upgrades" and then "Apply". Synaptic upgraded these two packages and then a notification popped up saying "Add tor-geoipdb tor to your additional software?". Note that these two packages were already installed earlier, all what happened was an upgrade. I suspect that we're comparing versions, and not only package names, when we identify candidate packages for adding to ASP upon APT operations.

I did not test the same operation with APT on the command line but I suspect it'll be the same.

The expected behavior is not specified. I think you're right, but one may argue that if you upgrade a package you may want to save these changes.
