Only packages that have "overrides" will show up in the Packages
indices. Usually one would add them with process-new when initially
accepting the package. One can also use control-override to add them.

The import command also has an option to automatically add overrides for
the imported packages (--add-overrides). By default, it just imports the
packages without adding overrides.
