Bug#194190: ITP: dpkg-rebuild -- Rebuild dpkg's status file

Package: wnpp
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-05-21
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : dpkg-rebuild
  Version         : Will be 0.1
  Upstream Author : Patrick Reynolds <reynolds@cs.duke.edu>

  Description     : Rebuild dpkg's status file.

 Rebuild the Debian '/var/lib/dpkg/status' file from information in
 '/var/lib/dpkg/available' and '/var/lib/dpkg/info/*.list'.  This is
 useful if your 'status' file got corrupted if the system crashed during
 package maintenance, for example.

 I think this script is quite useful although it is not complete.
 Unless somebody has serious reason to refuse this package entering
 Debian, I will package and upload it.
