Package: dctrl-tools Version: 2.24-2+b1 Severity: wishlist Hi! It would be nice if you could extend one of the tools, or provide a new one, to drop records whose key matches one already seen.
In apt-available files, old copies of packages that still linger because of a problem on a single arch cause no end of "joy". Thus, in such case you'd want to sort-dctrl by Version then uniq by Package.
