I'm not quite sure, does that file only contain the package version info for
FreeBSD release 8? or it also contains the version info for other releases?

I also need the package availability information on previous release, such
as, what the version of package 'A' on FreeBSD 6.2 and FreeBSD 7.0. So, the
linked file seems only contains information for FreeBSD 8.0, am I wrong?
