Someone else pointed me at
http://packages.debian.org/lenny/allpackages?format=txt.gz which is
almost what I need. It's just missing maintainer and full description.

Who's responsible for the URL above? What's the update rate? Would it
be possible to add more fields if passing more flags
?format=txt.gz&extra_fields=maintainer ... ?
