published versions on ...ubuntu/+source/<spackagename>

Asked by StefanPotyra on 2008-07-11

Hi,

I'm a little bit confused comparing
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-driver-ati/
with
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/min12xxw/

my interpretation was, that xserver-xorg-driver-ati was removed after dapper. Strange enough, there's a later upload for edgy, which doesn't show a "released" entry.
Also, it seems like xserver-xorg-driver-ati was still present in later versions, as I have it on my system, which is not older than a gutsy installation. Neither rmadison nor packages.ubuntu.com support this though.

Cheers,
   Stefan.

hm... maybe my system is a little bit older than I though (damn, how time goes by). Nonetheless, why is there no edgy entry?

To rephrase the question: "how can I determine if a package has been removed from the archive"

ok, LP is doing the right thing. the package was removed from edgy (afaict) and hence there's no release entry in edgy.

Sorry for the noise.

P.S.: I'll cheer a little bit (I won't tell you why, just look at the wiki page and the history who added/changed what *g*).
