LTNU(1) LTNU(1)

NAME

ltnu - lists packages of a maintainer ordered by last upload

SYNOPSIS

env DEBEMAIL=maintainer ltnu [-m]

ltnu [-m] maintainer

ltnu --help

DESCRIPTION

ltnu (Long Time No Upload) queries the public mirror of the Ultimate Debian Database (udd-mirror.debian.net) for all uploads of packages by the given uploader or maintainer and displays them ordered by the last upload of that package to Debian Unstable, oldest uploads first.

Its primary purpose is to check which of your own or your team's packages haven't been uploaded for a long time and likely need a packaging revamp. It's less suitable for MIA team purposes as it doesn't make a difference with regards to who actually uploaded a package.

OPTIONS

-m
Only search in the Maintainer field and ignore the Uploaders field.

PARAMETERS

The maintainer/uploader to query can be given either by setting $DEBEMAIL as environment variable or as single commandline parameter.

If a commandline parameter does not contain an "@", "@debian.org" is appended, e.g. "ltnu abe" queries for "abe@debian.org".

Exceptions are some shortcuts for common, long e-mail addresses. So far implemented shortcuts:

pkg-gnustep
pkg-gnustep-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org
pkg-perl
pkg-perl-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org
pkg-zsh
pkg-zsh-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org
qa
packages@qa.debian.org

ENVIRONMENT

The following environment variables are honoured:
DEBEMAIL
Used for querying if no parameter is given.
PAGER
Used by psql as pager.

EXAMPLE

    $ ltnu pkg-zsh
             source          |     ver      |        uploaded

DEPENDENCIES

ltnu uses the PostgreSQL client command psql and hence needs Debian's postgresql-client package to be installed.
