Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

The *_InRelease files for pkgmaster.devuan.org and deb.devuan.org (and
probably also all *.deb.devuan.org mirrors) do not include an Origin:
field.  The *_InRelease files on packages.devuan.org do.  I haven't
checked amprolla.devuan.org or *.mirrors.devuan.org.

This came to light debugging odd behaviour of `lsb_release -c` (as you
can see illustrated below in the System Information where the codename
is `n/a`) using deb.devuan.org (see
https://lists.dyne.org/lurker/message/20180420.115057.d298af7b.en.html).
Whether `lsb_release` should consult these files is a separate issue but
when I switch to packages.devuan.org and run `apt-get update` the
codename all of a sudden displays as `ascii`, as expected.

There may be other packages that rely on the Origin: information.  One
that I am aware of is unattended-upgrades.  Its configuration lets the
user select which parts of their APT sources should be upgraded
unattended.  One of the specifications it supports is based on the
Origin: field.  Absence of the field in InRelease files will probably
break that.

This has been addressed.

Using deb.devuan.org in my sources.list, lsb_release -sc returns ascii.
