OK, it is a pretty tight search. Is there a wildcard facility?
How it does the matching is a bit unclear. Searching for "libgphoto"
doesn't find the "libgphoto2" packages in my PPA - this is why I
originally thought it didn't work. However, a search for
"libmeanwhile" finds my PPA based on either "libmeanwhile-dev" or
I'm guessing the search is word based?
peace & happiness,
