I don't think there's a central place for complete documentation for
most if not all index files, the times that I've had to check this
stuff out, I've had to read various projects source code (dak, apt,
dpkg-scan*, etc).

I've had in mind for a while now to add man pages for the indices to
dpkg, even if there's currently no dpkg-dev script making use or
generating Releases files, I think it makes sense to put it there as
it's on the lowest layer of the stack. I'll try to get those in for
1.17.x, if no one else sends patches. :)
