It would be good if there was an indication in the "*Packages*" buffer of where

I have added both MELPA and MELPA Stable to `package-archives':

'("melpa-stable" . "https://stable.melpa.org/packages/") t)
I sometimes install packages from gnu (ELPA), sometimes from melpa and sometimes
The package "ivy" is available from all three archives. After installing the

buffer the following two entries (although not next to each other):

>From this, I can figure out that I have not installed it from melpa (its status
is "available"). But I cannot easily know if I installed it from gnu or from
melpa-stable, or if it's available from only one or from both of them.
In this case, the versions on melpa-stable and gnu matches. (Or, at least, the
version number does.) But this just happens to be the case here. Often, the
package does not even exist on gnu, and I wouldn't know that from the above.

ivy 0.11.0 installed gnu Incremental
It would be even better if the describe-package buffer would also would show the
