[all variants] tool to show repository packagesview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Is there a tool that, given a repository URL, will show all the packages at that repository? If it can fetch package descriptions, that's even better. To clarity, I want more than just "apt-get update". I want to do this intentionally without adding such a repository to my sources.list (it is in part decide if I want to add it or not). (Hardware)
