Thanks, but I don't think this is correct. On my system:
$ grep-status -sPackage -F Package xulrunner
These are just the packages whose names contain the string xulrunner,
regardless if they're installed (e.g., liferea-xulrunner isn't), and it
omits many of the packages that are built from the xulrunner source
package, even installed ones, whose names don't contain the string
(e.g., I tried installing spidermonkey-bin, and it didn't show up).
According to the man page, your command merely prints the package
fields of those packages whose package fields contains the string
$source_package, as above. Have I missed something?
