dd-list - nicely list .deb packages and their maintainers
dd-list [-hiuV] [--help] [--stdin] [--dctrl] [--version] [--uploaders]
dd-list produces nicely formatted lists of Debian (.deb) packages and
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 <email@example.com>
Diana Hacker <firstname.lastname@example.org>
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.
Print brief help message.
Read package names from the standard input, instead of taking
them from the command line. Package names are whitespace
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.
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.
Only list package Maintainers, do not list Uploaders.
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).
Print the version.
