We have also dpkg-www.

It can be used to browse locally installed and available packages. It uses
apt and dpkg, has more links than pdbv, doesn't need to build a cache and
doesn't require an internet access, unless you follow the BTS or mainainer
links. Try with:

    # apt-get install dpkg-www grep-dctrl

    $ dpkg-www dpkg-\*
    $ dpkg-www section=net
    $ dpkg-www maintainer="Joey Hess"
    $ dpkg-www =iptables
