Reviewing needs-packaging bug reports

I came across a needs-packaging bug report, these are requests to get
software added to Ubuntu, and quickly discovered that it was Fix
Released. Here is what I did to check and see whether or not the
software was in Ubuntu.
I used 'apt-cache search opensync' to look for a package that would
meet the bug reporter's need. I thought I had a good match in
synce-sync-engine so used 'apt-cache show synce-sync-engine' to show the
package description. I then used 'rmadison synce-sync-engine' to verify
what releases of Ubuntu the package is in.
Generally, the needs-packaging bug reports name the software so it is
easier to search for a package with a similar name. Reviewing the
needs-packaging bug reports is a pretty easy thing to do and as there
are more than 2000 bug reports it would be a huge help.
If you have any questions feel free to ask in #ubuntu-bugs.
