Distributions are named stable, unstable and frozen. Sections are named
main, contrib, non-US and non-free. Subsections are admin, base etc.

However, in the non-US case, the subsections aren't admin, base et al,
but main, contrib and non-free. There aren't any subsubsections, like
admin, base etc., but that is not important since there aren't that many
non-US applications.

So, for example, GnuPG package would have `Section: non-US/main` in its
debian/control file, and ssh would have `Section: non-US/non-free`.
