aptitude search ~Ovolatile.debian.net

Strictly speaking the . characters should be escaped with a backslash 
since the search term is a regular expression.

If you run 'apt-cache policy' you can see the list of all your apt 
sources along with a list of terms that you can use to search with. For 
example, my entry for volatile is:

  510 http://ftp.nl.debian.org sarge/volatile/main Packages
      release o=volatile.debian.net,a=stable,l=debian-volatile,c=main
      origin ftp.nl.debian.org

Note that aptitude's idea of 'origin' corresponds to the 
'o=volatile.debian.net' string after 'release', *not* the string after 
'origin'. Yes, this is confusing. :)

For more information about Aptitude search terms, install an 
aptitude-doc package and consult e.g.,
