    And yes it is a Bad Thing because the package repositories are always listed by code name rather than release version. It makes finding the right repository more confusing than it needs to be if you need to track down a package manually. It's not cute. It's annoying.

      Seriously? It's way easier for me to remember "eoan" or "disco" than "19.04" or "19.10". The latter names are too generic.

        See https://packages.ubuntu.com/eoan/devel/apt-build for example
        I wasn't talking about package URLs. You shouldn't be messing with that directly. Look here: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/

          If you want a specific deb you go to here http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/ where there is no codename and all packages.
