Since then it seems Packages grew SHA-1/SHA-256 hashes but Sources are
still missing them. I've filed a bug about this just now:

Currently the script doesn't automatically detect or handle
forked/repackaged packages. I'm only currently detecting some due to
the larger-than-100MB-patch warning. I plan to work on this at some
point but need to think about some ways to detect this using the
package changelog and the snapshots database.
As for tracking reasons/status, probably the sync blacklist is a good place?
