I meant the script as a tool to check with the absolute latest upstream
If this is a problem (or not the wished behaviour) I can easily modify the
script so that it doesn't consider upstream versions above a given release.
In a previous version of the script I was checking by release and suite so the
result was in line with your expectations, however, many packages which are
maintained by the Ubuntu Desktop Team could not be found (while available on
the Sources pages).

My problem is that many of these packages are not maintained by the Ubuntu
Desktop Team, so I'm not sure that it is appropriate to list them all in this
page; what I would really need is a list from the pov of the Ubuntu team.
Thanks for your help,
