germinate-pkg-diff — compare seeds against currently installed packages


germinate-pkg-diff [-l file] [-m {i|r|d}] [-a arch] [seeds]


germinate-pkg-diff compares the expansion of a list of seed packages against the set of
packages installed on the current system. When constructing seeds for a software
distribution, it can be used to iteratively find packages installed on developers' systems
that should be included in the seeds.

A list of seeds against which to compare may be supplied as non-option arguments. Seeds
from which they inherit will be added automatically. The default is ‘desktop’.


-l, --list file
Read the list of currently installed packages from file. The default is to read the
output of dpkg --get-selections, and any supplied file should be in the same format.

-m, --mode {i|r|d}
Set the output mode as follows:

i Show the dpkg selections needed to install just these seeds. List unseeded but
installed files as “deinstall”, and seeded but uninstalled files as “install”.

r List unseeded but installed files as “install”, and seeded but uninstalled files
as “deinstall”.

d Show the differences between the packages specified by the seeds and the list of
installed packages, in a somewhat diff-like format.

-S, --seed-source source,...
Fetch seeds from the specified sources. The default is

-s, --seed-dist dist
Fetch seeds for distribution dist. The default is ubuntu.xenial.

-d, --dist dist,...
Operate on the specified distributions. The default is xenial. Listing multiple
distributions may be useful, for example, when examining both a released distribution
and its security updates.

-a, --arch arch
Operate on architecture arch. The default is i386.
