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@example.com> j-random-package j-random-other Diana Hacker <firstname.lastname@example.org> 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.
-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, bzip2 or xz. -s, --sources Sources_file Read package information from the specified Sources_files. This can be given multiple times. The files can be gz, bzip2 or xz compressed. If the filename does not end in .gz, .bz2 or .xz, 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.
