SED help needed.

I am trying to develop a sed script to extract a package description based
on the virtual package name but cannot get it to work:

I have the following sed script (running on /var/lib/dpkg/status):

/^Package: /,/^Description: /{
/^Provides:.* elf-x11r6/{

But the g;p does not print the hold pattern space instead it prints the
line that matches the Provides: . How can I print the
complete package description?
