that is a minimum. isn't it? ;)
and then we will need some ``apt-get info pkg'' hehe..

say one release contains 2000 pkgz, each pkg name is 10 chars, then the whole
infomation is a little more then 20k, compare with nowadays, a more than 1M.
and you could have base-3.3-release, and gnome-4.4-release which depends on
base-3.2-release and x-5.6-release. and chinese-2.0-release etc. ...
