       botch-clean-repository - clean errors in a repository by removing transitively
       uninstallable or compilable packages


       botch-clean-repository [options] Packages Sources


       given a repository of binary packages and source packages, clean up that repository by
       removing packages that can't be compiled or installed and packages which don't have an
       associated binary or source package and packages which do not match the specified

       This effectively creates a self contained repository of maximal size.

       -h, --help
           show this help message and exit

       -v, --verbose
           print additional information

           do no print any messages

           require source packages for arch:all binary packages

           add source packages which only build arch:all binary packages

           Drop Build-Depends-Indep dependencies

           Drop Build-Depends-Arch dependencies

           If a binary package is without a source package but there is a source package of same
           name but different version, match this binary package to that source package.

           Native architecture ARCH

           Host architecture arch. Defaults to native architecture.

           Comma-separated foreign architectures in addition to native and host architectures.

           By default, installing any binary package requires the coinstallation set of all
           binary packages marked as Essential:yes to be installed as well. This option drops
           this requirement.


       Clean up a repository:

        botch-clean-repository --deb-native-arch=amd64 packages sources > packages-clean
        botch-bin2src --deb-native-arch=amd64 packages-clean sources > sources-clean
