I am running testing/unstable.
dpkg -l newbiedoc
Yes, if they are in the package cache. I get the packages lists of all

apt-cache I get a listing because I have the discriptions of 'all' of
the debian packages.

Sorry about that. Thats (doc-linux-nonfree-text) what doc-linux-text
is called in testing/unstable, which is what I am running. My bad!
Debian GNU/Linux (testing/unstable)
