Description From 2004-08-25 20:56:32
There must be possibility in synaptic, apt etc to see what repository current
package belongs to.
E.g. 
$ apt-cache search synaptic
shows now next:
...
synaptic - Graphical front-end for APT

Should be :
synaptic - Graphical front-end for APT {Dedalus, Base} 

Also must be additional filter in synaptic to filter by repositories.

There is such possibility both in synaptic and apt. In synaptic one can see
repositories on the "Versions" tab in the properties window. In apt it is needed
to use "apt-cache showpkg":
$ apt-cache showpkg synaptic
Package: synaptic
Versions: 
0.56-alt0.3(/var/lib/apt/lists/_home_setup_ALTLinux_Sisyphus_i586_base_pkglist.classic)(/var/lib/rpm/Packages)
0.56-alt0.2(/var/lib/apt/lists/_home_setup_ALTLinux_hasher_i586_base_pkglist.hasher)
...

There is theoretical possibility to search by repository. One need to create new
filter searching by Origin... but the thing is that functionality doesn't work
in synaptic, the implementation has bug... Could you please create new  bug for
this? ;-)
