This package contains extra tools for analyzing meta-data of software
- ceve, a general metadata parser supporting different input formats
(Debian, rpm, and others) and different output formats.
- dose-outdated, a Debian-specific tool for finding packages that are not
installable with respect to a package repository, and that can only be
made installable again by fixing the package itself.
- dose-challenged, a Debian-specific tool for checking which packages
will certainly become uninstallable when some existing package is upgraded
to a newer version.
- dose-deb-coinstall, a Debian-specific tool for checking whether a set of
packages can be installed all together.
The tools dose-distcheck and dose-builddebcheck are packaged in their
own resepective packages.
