As a reference, here are samples of the kind of messages that we want to
https://packages.qa.debian.org/p/python2.4.html (completely gone)
https://packages.qa.debian.org/p/python2.6.html (going away)
To make it generic, by default the check should be done on the default
repository only but it should be overridable with a setting
DISTRO_TRACKER_DEVEL_REPOSITORIES listing all the codenames of the
repositories that can contain developement versions of he package
(indicating thus that the package is not dead).
