NAME

       daptup - plugin for apt[itude] and cupt to list repository changes

SYNOPSIS

       daptup ( --pre | --post | --last ) [ -h | --help ] [ --nocolor ]

OPTIONS

       --pre  Do  only  'pre'  stage: collect info that will be used as 'old'.
              Usually need to be specified only in apt hooks.

       --post Do only 'post' stage: collect 'new'  info  and  (if  appropriate
              option  is  enabled in config file) output changes. Usually need
              to be specified only in apt hooks.

       --last Output changes only. This option is  supposed  to  be  specified
              when  you want to see changes made in the last update. Note that
              list of outdated packages, if daptup is configured to output it,
              will be rebuilt.

       -h --help
              prints the help

       --nocolor
              Disables  color output, useful for scripts or when output is not
              terminal. Now works only with --last option,  however,  you  can
              disable color globally in configuration file.

       daptup  is  a  script that outputs list of packages recently entered to
       repo, list of packages which  got  new  updates,  list  of  changes  in
       'watched' packages and, optionally, list of outdated packages.

       Starting  with  0.8.0 version, daptup uses apt hooks and you don't need
       to explicitly call it. It will  be  called  automatically  by  all  the
       supported package managers.

TROUBLESHOOTING

       If  daptup  was  interrupted while building the lists, the cached lists
       can stay in inconsistent state, which is inappropriate if you  want  to
       use  --last  option  before  the  new update. There is nothing to do if
       interrupt occurred at the moment when old lists were building  (besides
       running  the  new  update). However, if interrupt occurred when the new
       lists were building, you can easily redo this stage by calling  'daptup
       --post'.

FILES

              self-documented configuration file

       /var/spool/daptup/outdated
