dd-list - nicely list .deb packages and their maintainers SYNOPSIS
dd-list [-hiusV] [--help] [--stdin] [--sources Sources_file] [--dctrl] [--version] [--uploaders] [package ...] DESCRIPTION
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 <> j-random-package j-random-other Diana Hacker <> fun-package more-fun-package 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 happens. OPTIONS
-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. -s, --sources Sources_file Read package information from the specified Sources_files. This can be given multiple times. 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 --nou- ploaders 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.

WHO-UPLOADS(1)						      General Commands Manual						    WHO-UPLOADS(1)

who-uploads - identify the uploaders of Debian source packages SYNOPSIS
who-uploads [options] source_package ... DESCRIPTION
who-uploads uses the Package Tracking System (PTS) to identify the uploaders of the three most recent versions of the given source pack- ages. Note that the uploaders are identified using their gpg(1) keys; installing a recent version of the debian-keyring package should provide most of the required keys. Note that because the PTS uses source packages, you must give the source package names, not the binary package names. OPTIONS
-M, --max-uploads=N Specify the maximum number of uploads to display for each package; the default is 3. Note that you may not see this many uploads if there are not this many recorded in the PTS. --keyring keyring Add keyring to the list of keyrings to be searched for the uploader's GPG key. --no-default-keyrings By default, who-uploads uses the two Debian keyrings /usr/share/keyrings/debian-keyring.gpg and /usr/share/keyrings/debian-maintain- ers.gpg (although this default can be changed in the configuration file, see below). Specifying this option means that the default keyrings will not be examined. The --keyring option overrides this one. --date Show the date of the upload alongside the uploader's details --nodate, --no-date Do not show the date of the upload alongside the uploader's details. This is the default behaviour. --no-conf, --noconf Do not read any configuration files. This can only be used as the first option given on the command-line. --help, -h Display a help message and exit successfully. --version Display version and copyright information and exit successfully. CONFIGURATION VARIABLES
The two configuration files /etc/devscripts.conf and ~/.devscripts are sourced in that order to set configuration variables. Command line options can be used to override configuration file settings. Environment variable settings are ignored for this purpose. The currently recognised variables are: WHOUPLOADS_DATE Show the date of the upload alongside the uploader's details. By default, this is "no". WHOUPLOADS_MAXUPLOADS The maximum number of uploads to display for each package. By default, this is 3. WHOUPLOADS_KEYRINGS This is a colon-separated list of the default keyrings to be used. By default, it is the two Debian keyrings /usr/share/keyrings/debian-keyring.gpg and /usr/share/keyrings/debian-maintainers.gpg. AUTHOR
