Along with the general “list” keys (see List buffer), a “generation-list” buffer additionally provides the following bindings:

P

d

Mark the current generation for deletion (with prefix, mark all generations).

x

Execute actions on the marked generations—i.e., delete generations.

e

Run Ediff (see The Ediff Manual) on package outputs installed in the 2 marked generations. With prefix argument, run Ediff on manifests of the marked generations.

=

Run Diff (see Diff Mode in The GNU Emacs Manual) on package outputs installed in the 2 marked generations. With prefix argument, run Diff on manifests of the marked generations.

+

List package outputs added to the latest marked generation comparing with another marked generation.

-

List package outputs removed from the latest marked generation comparing with another marked generation.
