There might be a better way to do it once is back
up after the intrusion, but one way for sure is that you can just look
at the ftp archive.  eg:

There's nothing there right now because libunwind isn't part of Debian
yet, but that's where it'll end up.

Otherwise you can do "apt-cache show libunwind".

Alternatively, since you're nice enough to let Matthieu know when you
upload the latest version of libunwind, I' sure he'll be only too happy
to return the favour and let you know when he uploads a new version
to unstable.  There's no notification when a package transitions from
unstable to testing, so someone would have to watch for that themself.

"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon 
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince 
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep 
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
