Statistics to Choose a Debian Package to Help

Tweet [1]

In the last week I played a bit with UDD [2] (Ultimate Debian Database). After some experiments I did a script to generate a daily report about source packages [3] in Debian. This report is useful to choose a package that needs help.

The daily report has six sections:

The first section has several important data about all source packages in Debian, ordered by last upload to Sid. It is very useful to see packages without revisions for a long time. Other interesting data about each package are Standards-Version, packaging format, number of NMUs, among others. Believe it or not, there are packages uploaded to Sid for the last time 2003! (seven packages)

With the report, you can choose a ideal package to do QA uploads, NMUs or to adopt.

Well, if you like to review packages, this report is for you: https://people.debian.org/~eriberto/udd/help_a_package.html. Enjoy!
