Bug#120707: marked as done (package date in .deb)
> Package: dpkg
> Version: 1.9.18
> Priority: wishlist
> Package dates are not reported. Specifically the date that the package
> was created should be part of the .deb file and reported via dpkg -s.
> This would be tremendously helpful in knowing the age of a package,
> giving a reference that the package is very new (possibly buggy) or very
> old (possibly look for newer upstream, new package needed, needs update
> for latest release).
This is not a cdrtools bug.
