  • making a daily snapshot with the help of a cron job,
  • if you are getting into troubles, it will be easy to see which new packages have been installed since time T,
  • you like testing a lot off packages, some of them making you install a bunch of extra libs,
  • you can print a twapake snapshot before your testing party and, after. The diff will give you the list of what you have to remove to retrieve a clean system,
  • you want to see what are the last 5 installed packages,
  • you want to remove the last 6 installed packages.
