I just tried this:
Find the repository with your browser
for this line in sources.list:
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ edgy universe main restricted multiverse
I went to:
There you will find a file named Packages.bz2
Download this file and you find a list of all of the packages and their versions and descriptions
