A version belongs to a section and has hence a section member of its own. A package on the other hand can have multiple versions from different sections. This was "solved" by using the section which was parsed first as order of sources.list defines, but that is obviously a horribly unpredictable thing. Users are way better of with the Section() as returned by the version they are dealing with. It is likely the same for all versions of a package, but in the few cases it isn't, it is important (like packages moving from main/* to contrib/* or into oldlibs …). Backport ofdebian/1.8.y
7a66977which actually instantly removes the member.
