Thanks for the review. Is the current "apt-get update --print-uris"
sufficient? It displays both URL and path. There is currently a bug
in the output and it does not display the "Release" file when run with
--print-utis. This is fixed in my bzr tree and will be part of the
next upload.

I'm working on the remaining bits now and it should be finished
soon.


Cheers,

Ah, yes. If you can promise that the output format won't change without
due notice, then I can start using that as soon as it displays the
Release file.

Thanks,

With the latest apt upload 0.7.9ubuntu6 the bug should be fixed. The
format of --print-uris should be pretty stable and I have no intention
to break it

Looks perfect; I now have an apt-setup-signed-release script which I'll
test once I'm a little bit more awake.
