To get an overview of the package versions in OSGeo-Live, Debian &
Ubuntu I've whipped up a script to compare the versions between the
three repositories.

For Debian & Ubuntu the public UDD (Ultimate Debian Database) instance
is used, and for OSGeo-Live the Sources file is downloaded from the PPA
repository. The script and example text output (JSON is also supported)
are attached (in compressed form because the initial email was too big).

Only packages included in the Debian GIS Blends metapages and those in
the OSGeo-Live PPA are considered. The report can be used to plan which
packages to update for the next OSGeo-Live development cycle.

Kind Regards,
