Is there a way to find out from which repository did a package get 
installed from or from which repository it will be installed from? If 
there is a way then I guess I can check the list of programs I am 
interested in installing and see if there are any that are not in main.

On the other hand I had great success in upgrading my laptop (pretty new 
Dell D820, dual core 2, SATA HD, 1920 x 1200, wireless, etc.) from Edgy 
to Feisty. Not only the upgrade did not break anything(!) but I have 
seen improvements all over the place (for example it used to have 
occasionally a problem to come back from suspend. Now it works perfectly 
every time). I assume the server upgrades are more straight forward 
since there is less exotic hardware involved, no need to suspend, no 
wireless, etc. If this is the case, I may decide to go for Feisty server.

Hmm, decisions, decisions.
