When would you estimate that it would be a reality? The page is dated

Doesn't the CRMI contradict with the more recent proposal, which aims
to bring the meta information to debian/copyright?

Disks are measured in Teradytes and data trasfer speeds are increasing,
not to mention the use of pdiffs. The percentage the apt-data takes
compared to programs itself is insignificant.

I would say that the information is consulted more easily daily basis by


Looking at [*] more, this shows tendency to prefer meta-information
inside the package instead of external CRMI. I think this bug's proposal
belongs there. I've just updated the [*] page.

Thanks for discussion, which led forward.
