   Thank you for this information, Lucien.

   Again I find myself facing the question: Given the name of a piece
of the Debian distribution, how do I find the Debian package it came

  In this case, I see

# zgrep -i pathchk Contents.gz
/usr/bin/pathchk                  /debian.org/ftp/debian/debian
/usr/man/man1/pathchk.1           /debian.org/ftp/debian/debian
# zgrep -i pathchk Packages.gz

   Why do all the lines in Contents.gz end in

   Why not use that space to convey needed information?
