NAME

       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 <jrandom@debian.org>
                     j-random-package
                     j-random-other

              Diana Hacker <diana@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.

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.

       -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.
