       dose-outdated - detect uninstallable packages due to obsolete dependencies


       dose-outdated [option] ... file ...


       dose-outdated identifies in a debian package repository those packages that are not
       installable with respect to that repository by the their inter-package relationships
       (dependencies, conflicts, ...), and that furthermore cannot become installable (in the
       current version) how matter how the rest of the repository evolves. This means that this
       package has to be updated in the repository to ever become installable again.

Input Specification

       Input files have to contain stanzas in the format of deb-control(5), separated by one
       blank line. For instance, the Packages files as found on a Debian mirror server, or in the
       directory /var/lib/apt/lists/ of a Debian system, are suitable as input. The repository
       used in the analysis consists of the union of all packages from the input files.

Output Specification

       The output of dose-outdated is in the YAML format.
