wnpp-alert - check for installed packages up for adoption or orphaned
wnpp-alert [--diff] [package ...]
wnpp-alert downloads the lists of packages which have been orphaned (O), are up for adoption (RFA), or the maintainer has asked for help (RFH) from the WNPP webpages, and then outputs a list of packages installed on the system, or matching the listed packages, which are in those lists.
Note that WNPP, and therefore wnpp-alert's output, is source package based.
wnpp-alert was written by Arthur Korn <firstname.lastname@example.org> and modified by Julian Gilbey <email@example.com> for the devscripts package. It is in the public domain.
