An alternative (UDD-based) is [1], but the information provided by it can 
lag a few hours. That could of course be improved but that needs some 
coordination between the UDD maintainers, ftpmasters (maybe, not sure,) and 

Shameless plug: you can also use the same CGI to check ubuntu, all the 
derivatives, and everything UDD knows about. You just need to pass it the 
"table" argument (with either debian, ubuntu, derivatives, or all.) E.g. 

[1] http://qa.debian.org/cgi-bin/madison.cgi
Also known as 'udd' to the rmadison script. I.e. `rmadison -u udd`
