dd-list [-hiusV] [--help] [--stdin] [--sources Sources_file] [--dctrl]
[--version] [--uploaders] [package ...]
dd-list produces nicely formatted lists of Debian (.deb) packages and
Input is a list of source or binary package names on the command line
(or the standard input if --stdin is given). Output is a list of the

-s, --sources Sources_file
