It is annoying to keep re-scanning a set of 13 DVDs.
Where is the information stored?
/etc/apt/sources.list is obvious, but where is the data about contents
of each DVD stored?

 man apt-get

It implies *BUT DOES _NOT_ STATE* the all the requested data is in the
/var/lib/apt directory.

Stop pissing about. Is the data in /var/lib/apt or not?

Who knows. I don't!
I has some, but is it all???????????
