The list of packages (the packages.bz2 file) is created when the files are
uploaded; this should always match unless something happens to damage the
file transfer, or if there's some legal restriction that keeps files from
being uploaded.

In this case, convertlit is restricted.  If you look at the Makefile, it's
forbidden to upload the binary (or even source?) anywhere, as there's
apparently legal issues around it.  It's a converter to "Convert Microsoft
Legal Reader format eBooks into open format", so I'm not too surprised. 
The uploaded report lists what was buildable, not what's available.
