Bug#699268: UDD: should learn about Extra-Source-Only: yes and ignore those packages in rmadison
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
it's not obvious to me that UDD should be ignoring these packages or that
rmadison should hide them.
* UDD has always taken the view that it should represent in the database
what is in the data source -- the sources table is the Source file on the
* these source packages are available for people to download from the
mirror, so why shouldn't they be in UDD and why shouldn't rmadison list
$ rmadison -s sid alsa-utils
alsa-utils | 1.0.25-3 | sid | source
alsa-utils | 1.0.25-4 | sid | source, amd64, armel, armhf, i386, …
$ apt-get source alsa-utils=1.0.25-3
Get:1 http://http.debian.net/debian/ sid/main alsa-utils 1.0.25-3 (dsc)
Overall, I'm not sure that having them in rmadison or the sources table
causes any problems, so I'm not sure why we would want to hide them there.
I would, however, like to add Extra-Source-Only to the gatherer's list of
known fields so that it complains less about them.
