Just as a followup on this (despite opening the bug I didn't receive
mail from it after the first response??) -
src/cmdline/cmdline_changelog.cc:do_cmdline_changelog has the following
// For real packages/versions, we can do a sanity check on the
// version and warn the user if it looks like it doesn't have a
// corresponding source package.
It then proceeds to use aptitude::apt::check_valid_origin shortly after
- so it isn't a security check etc.
The other usage is in src/view_changelog.cc:view_changelog, where it is
probably used as a crutch to avoid validating the changelog data directly:
// check if we know the origin
if ( ! aptitude::apt::check_valid_origin(ver) )
...<proceeds to start processing the data>
