Bug#1532: no revision number with repair



Package: repair
Version: 0.1-1 (last "1" by hand)
Libc: libc.so.4.6.27
Kernel etc: Linux morris 1.2.10 #1 Tue Jun 13 18:37:28 EST 1995 i486
Reporter: repair 0.1
Subject: Repair doesn't give debian revision

Repair seems to be searching in the file /var/lib/dpkg/available to
find some info about the specific package. It however never seems to
find the debian revision number. I took a quick look in the script and
it seems to search for a sequence "package_revision". In the
/var/lib/dpkg/available the keyword "revision" is used. In the control
file of a package the keyword "package_revision" (case insensitive)
should be used. Some inconsequence is spotted here. Perhaps this is a
bug? in dpkg.

Example:

$ dpkg --status repair
Package: repair
Status: install ok installed
