Package: reprepro
Version: 5.1.1-1
Severity: normal

In the manual page, the explanation about FilterList is rather confusing.

Here are some of the pain points I see:

“The first one is the default action when something is not found in the list”

=> what is this "list" you are referring to? are we speaking of the list
of packages available through the Method and which are considered by the
update rule? are we speaking of the list of instructions contained in
the files mentionned in the following parameters?

“only packages listed in there as install or that are already there and
are listed with upgradeonly will be installed”

=> what is the second "there"? does it refer to the files listing
instructions (like the first "there") or to the packages already processed
in the pipeline of the "update" or "pull" rule?

I believe it's the latter but it is somewhat counter-intuitive since
we have already used "there" to refer to something else.

“Things listed as deinstall or purge will be ignored.“

=> what ignored means is not clear... does it mean that it doesn't have
any effect on the pipeline of the update/pull rule ? does it mean that it
will remove the package ? if not, what's the way to remove a package ?
