NAME

       check-support-status - check installed packages for security support

VERSION

       Version 2014.05.29

SYNOPSIS

       Search for packages with ended or limited support:

           check-support-status

       Search for packages with ended support from a custom list, reporting each package only
       once:

           check-support-status \
               --type ended \
               --status-db /path/to/status-db \
               --list /path/to/security-support-ended

OPTIONS

       --list FILE
           Use the given file as the database of which packages are no longer supported or have
           limited support. The file format is plain text in columns, separated by one or more
           whitespace characters.

           For --type ended:

           ·   source package name

           ·   last package version that is supported

           ·   the date support was ended

           ·   the rest (optional): details, and/or a URL for further information.

           For --type limited:

           ·   source package name

           ·   the rest (optional): details, and/or a URL for further information.

           If no "--list" is provided, the script is run for both ended and limited support,
           using the lists shipped in the package.

       --no-heading
           Skips printing a headline.

       --status-db FILE
           Use the given file to record alerts so each affected package is reported only once.

           Default: No records, any affected package will be reported every time.

       --type TYPE
           One of the following:

           ·   "ended": Alert for packages where security support has ended.

           ·   "limited": Alert for packages where security support is limited.

       --version, --Version, -V
           Show the version number and exit.
