Indeed, confirming _that_ this happens is the absolute minimum.

You mean explicitly stating "I checked the packaging,
Debian/Ubuntu/Upstream bugs, security history, etc."? Of course
there's no harm in doing this. It would again introduce the kind
of boilerplate text which clutters the really interesting facts, but
it'd be much smaller, of course.
