Bug#382026: RFH: apt-show-versions -- lists available package versions with distribution
I request assistance with maintaining the apt-show-versions package.
The package description is:
apt-show-versions parses the dpkg status file and the APT lists for
the installed and available package versions and distribution and
shows upgrade options within the specific distribution of the selected
This is really useful if you have a mixed stable/testing environment
and want to list all packages which are from testing and can be
upgraded in testing.
The package is a native Debian package and needs some more
programming. There are some open issues in the bug reports and feature
requests. One thing would be the integration of backports.org. I need
some help here with the programming and the finding of the bugs,
because I have to few time at the moment. We should really have a
fixed version of apt-show-versions in etch.
