wnpp-alert - check for installed packages up for adoption or orphaned SYNOPSIS
wnpp-alert [--diff] [package ...] wnpp-alert --help|--version DESCRIPTION
wnpp-alert downloads the lists of packages which have been orphaned (O), are up for adoption (RFA), or the maintainer has asked for help (RFH) from the WNPP webpages, and then outputs a list of packages installed on the system, or matching the listed packages, which are in those lists. Note that WNPP, and therefore wnpp-alert's output, is source package based. OPTIONS
--diff, -d If the ~/.devscripts_cache directory exists, compare the output of wnpp-alert to the previous output (cached in the file wnpp-diff) and output the differences. --help, -h Show a summary of options. --version, -v Show version and copyright information. SEE ALSO AUTHOR
