apt (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: apt

<cjwatson> mvo: would it be useful for --print-uris to print URIs useful for other applications, rather than mirror:// URIs which can only be understood by apt?
<mvo> cjwatson: yes, absolutely

For example:

$ sudo apt-get --print-uris -y install vlc
'mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt/pool/universe/v/vlc/vlc_1.0.6-1ubuntu1.1_i386.deb' vlc_1.0.6-1ubuntu1.1_i386.deb 1637092 SHA256:8c1f14ee0cf7097148dde22d2faaa2ac745aec8a652ac6af930646f751b45f5c
