The conf file of bts-link is very close to that IMHO, and is probably
one of the best resources for building this (unless launchpad holds
better data ?) :

It seems to me that more than 150 packages are configured in bts-link's
config file... so that makes it more evident maybe that this is already
a pretty common need for Debian, even if it's only implemented inside
bts-lik and not in a more general way.

Just my 2 cents,
