We can't depend on distro-info at the moment since it's in Universe. We
couldn't promote the distro-info binary package to Main without MIR'ing
the ubuntu-dev-tools source package. I suspect that would be an
unpopular decision, as that would move write access to ubuntu-dev-tools
from MOTU to Core Dev.

source/binary as an Archive Admin, and write the MIR.
