I've noticed that some packages have a Ubuntu icon that supposedly indicated whether a package is supported or not (according to the help facilities). I originally thought this would indicate updated that come from the warty and warty-security repositories but this doesn't appear to be the case (linux-386-184.108.40.206-14 from warty-security is missing the icon). What does this icon indicate? Should I avoid installing packages I'm unfamiliar with that don't have the icon or is it still fine as long as it comes from a supported repository?
