Package: apt-offline
Version: 1.7.2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

apt-offline --help advertises a --simulate option (it's not in the man page).
Unfortunaely, "apt-offline --simulate install" actually performs the
operation rather than only simulating it. A supposedly safe no-op shouldn't
accidentally do things as root.
