Maybe I misunderstood the original problem, but there are serious
problems now.  Lots of packages are missing version and install lines,
not only libreadline6(*).  It's just the one package all people using
bash seeing immediately.  Scanning the ini file I saw at least 60 or
so packages affected by this problem.  Their package information block
just stops right after the "requires:" line.
