It is for the tool R2spec for which I am implementing the feature to
build the spec file from the name of the package, for this I need to
find in which repository the package belong and download the sources
I was therefore thinking if there was an easy way for me to check if a
package is in the release branch of the bioconductor repo and which
version it has.

Since the tool is python based I would have liked to keep it as
"pythonish" as possible.

Thanks for the ideas anyway,
