dd-list - nicely list .deb packages and their maintainers


dd-list [-hiusV] [--help] [--stdin] [--sources Sources_file] [--dctrl] [--version]
[--uploaders] [package ...]


dd-list produces nicely formatted lists of Debian (.deb) packages and their maintainers.

Input is a list of source or binary package names on the command line (or the standard
input if --stdin is given). Output is a list of the following format, where package names
are source packages by default:

J. Random Developer <[email protected]>

Diana Hacker <[email protected]>

This is useful when you want, for example, to produce a list of packages that need to
attention from their maintainers, e.g., to be rebuilt when a library version transition


-h, --help
Print brief help message.

-i, --stdin
Read package names from the standard input, instead of taking them from the command
line. Package names are whitespace delimited.

-d, --dctrl
Read package list from standard input in the format of a Debian package control
file. This includes the status file, or output of apt-cache. This is the fastest
way to use dd-list, as it uses the maintainer information from the input instead of
looking up the maintainer of each listed package.

If no Source: line is given, the Package: name is used for output, which might be a
binary package name.

-z, --uncompress
Try to uncompress the --dctrl input before parsing. Supported compression formats
are gz and bzip2.

-s, --sources Sources_file
Read package information from the specified Sources_files. This can be given
multiple times. The files can be gz or bzip2 compressed. If the filename does not
end in .gz or .bz2, then the -z option must be used.

If no Sources_files are specified, any files matching
/var/lib/apt/lists/*_source_Sources will be used.

-u, --uploaders
Also list developers who are named as uploaders of packages, not only the
maintainers; this is the default behaviour, use --nouploaders to prevent it.
Uploaders are indicated with "(U)" appended to the package name.

-nou, --nouploaders
Only list package Maintainers, do not list Uploaders.

-b, --print-binary
Use binary package names in the output instead of source package names (has no
effect with --dctrl if the Package: line contains source package names).

-V, --version
Print the version.
