This is not a real Bug, only some thoughts and I don't like to lose it.
And now it is in the bts.... :-)


dpkg sould build its database from several sources. Maybe it get the
generally tags from a debian ftp server (with only Package:, Version:,
all Depends, Recomments, ...

But the admin should have the possibility to add some extra Tags from
other sources, like  Homepage:, X-Tags, or Descriptions-LANG:=20


If dpkg has this support, maybe we can patch APT to download this extra
Meta-Datas, with a souces.list file like this:
  deb    http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian stable main
  extdeb http://people.debian.org/~user/debian-urls/ stable main
  extdeb http://server.localnet/debian-tags stable main

The BTS isn't the right place for design discussions. Also this aspect
of dpkg design has already been discussed and you already know we want
to support a split database.

This is silly, dpkg does not downloads files and never will (a package
manager has no business doing that).
