Hello,

I have

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(when (require 'package nil t)
  (package-initialize))

(setq
 package-archives
 '(("gnu"   . "http://elpa.gnu.org/packages/")
   ("melpa" . "http://melpa.org/packages/")))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

as only settings related to package.el in my init file.

Whenever I do M-x package-list-packages (once each day), I see a huge
amount of new packages -- ~ 2600 today for example -- most of them from
Melpa.  I guess these are mostly packages with a new version available,
but they appear as "new".  It behaves like this since some weeks.

Is anyone else seeing this?  I find this inconvenient, since I
don't see when (really) new packages were added.


Thanks in advance,

Michael.
