rc-alert


SYNOPSIS
       rc-alert  [inclusion  options]  [--debtags  [tag[,tag  ...]] [--popcon]
       [package ...]
       rc-alert --help|--version

DESCRIPTION
       rc-alert downloads the list of release-critical bugs  from  the  Debian
       BTS webpages, and then outputs a list of packages installed on the sys-
       tem, or given on the command-line, which are in that list.

       If the directory ~/.devscripts_cache exists or the  --cache  option  is
       given, then the (sizable) downloaded list will be cached, and will only
       be downloaded again on a second invocation if it has changed.

OPTIONS
       --cache
              Force the creation of the ~/.devscripts_cache cache directory.

       --help, -h
              Show a summary of options.

       --version, -v
              Show version and copyright information.

       It is also possible to filter the list of bugs reported  based  on  the
       tags  and  distributions  associated  with  the  package. The filtering
       options are:

       --include-tags, -f
              A list of tags which the bug must have, in the format  used  for
              output.   For  example,  to include bugs tagged security or help
              wanted, use "SH".

       --include-tag-op, -t
              If set to and, a bug must have all  of  the  tags  specified  by
              --include-tags.

       --exclude-tags
              A  list  of tags which the bug must not have, in the same format
              as --include-tags.

       --exclude-tag-op
              If set to and, a bug must have none of  the  tags  specified  by
              --exclude-tags.  By default, the bug will be excluded if any tag
              matches.

       --include-dists, -d
              A list of distributions which the bug must apply to, in the for-
              mat  used  for  output.   For example, to include bugs affecting
              testing or unstable, use "TU".

       --include-dist-op, -o
              If set to and, a bug must apply to all of the specified  distri-

       Note  that  you  need  to have debtags installed and also that it's not
       mandatory for maintainers to set proper debtags. The produced list will
       thus probably be incomplete.

       --debtags
              Match packages based on the listed tags. Each package is matched
              only if it has all the listed tags; in the case of multiple tags
              within the same facet, a package is matched if it has any of the
              listed tags within the facet.

       --debtags-database
              Use  a  non-standard   debtags   database.    The   default   is
              /var/lib/debtags/packages-tags.

       Popularity-contest collects data about installation and usage of Debian
       packages. You can additionally sort the bugs by the popcon rank of  the
       related packages.

       --popcon
              Sort bugs by the popcon rank of the package the bug belongs to.

       --pc-vote
              By  default, packages are sorted according to the number of peo-
              ple who have the package installed. This option enables  sorting
              by  the  number  of  people regularly using the package instead.
              This option has no effect in combination with --pc-local.

       --pc-local
              Instead of requesting remote data the information from the  last
              popcon run is used (/var/log/popularity-contest).

EXAMPLES
       --include-dists OS
              The bug must apply to at least one of oldstable or stable

       --include-dists TU --include-dist-op and
              The bug must apply to both testing and unstable

       --include-dists O --include-tags S --exclude-tags +
              The  bug  must apply to oldstable and be tagged security but not
              patch

       --exclude-dists SOT --include-tags R
              The bug must apply to only unstable or  experimental  (or  both)
              and be tagged unreproducible

       --debtags implemented-in::perl,role::plugin,implemented-in::python
              The  bug  must apply to packages matching the specified debtags,
              i.e.  the  match  will  only  include  packages  that  have  the
              'role::plugin'  tag  and  that  have  either of the tags 'imple-
              mented-in::perl' or 'implemented-in::python'.

       --popcon --pc-local
              Read /var/log/popularity-contest and sort bugs by your  personal

       for the devscripts package. Debtags and popcon functionality was  added
       by Jan Hauke Rahm <info@jhr-online.de>.
