My needs are rather limited. I want a list of binary package names
generated by a given source package: it's used to aggregate some stats
that we have by binary packages (gift bugs, help bugs, BTS stats on the
right). It's also used to map a description per binary package to the
corresponding source package entry.
I want a mapping "binary package name -> source package generating it"
so that people who type http://packages.qa.debian.org/libc6 get redirected
I don't care about versions, I just want the current sid/experimental
information. I don't care about the arch of a given package but I want to
see all binary packages generated on all arches.
