Default apt repository checker?

Hi all,

Within the context of the derivatives census I have been looking at
the apt repositories of our derivatives. I noted that some of them are
affected by #637563 due to directly importing Debian repository data.
I also found some repositories that are not GPG signed. So I was
wondering if we have a tool for checking apt repositories and looking
for common mistakes.

Well, checking Sources (and Packages) for Bug#637563 could, as
it seems, be implemented (in, say, Awk or Perl) quite easily.

Signature checking, as well as the Release parsing & dist/ files
download is a bit more tricky. Something like one or two rainy
days of coding effort, I guess.

Just to verify Release files (InRelease), look into the dak code,
config/debian/dinstall.functions, function mirrorpush.
