       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
       their maintainers.

       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 <>

              Diana Hacker <>

       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.
