I've looked into those files and apparently they can be my solution but one
question popped out: 
the files contain only the last version for each package, aren't they? 
I'll make myself clearer. Let's say that a package has more than one update
in the repository precise-updates or precise-security, for example 

In this case I won't be able to fetch the repo info for
pkg-name_version_revision1.0 right? Or maybe I'm missing something
