For Ubuntu, I think the (only) correct way to track this is to represent
linaro releases as actual releases in the package archive.
i.e., sources.list will look like
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports precise main
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/linaro-maintainers/overlay linaro-12.02 main
and the things it points to would then be authoritative definition
of what was in that release for evermore (or at least, the GPL-requisite
Once we have this, we can document robustly how to find out, because
the means to do so will be stable and not constantly changing.
Do you know if this is sensible/doable, or is launchpad very tied the
ubuntu release names?
