       name-search  -  check  if  a certain name is available for use on a handful of open source
       related sites


       name-search $@


       name-search is a script that will check if a given namespace is available  in  the  Ubuntu
       apt archive, on, on, and if domain names might be available.

       This may be helpful when selecting the name of an open source project, for instance.
