  Description     : Multi functional app to find duplicates, empty folders,
similar images etc

There is a GUI and a cli package:
- czkawka-gui
- czkawka-cli

Czkawka (tch-kav-ka, hiccup) is a simple, fast and free app to remove
unnecessary files from your computer.

- Written in memory safe Rust
- Amazingly fast - due to using more or less advanced algorithms and
- Free, Open Source without ads
- Multiplatform - works on Linux, Windows and macOS
- Cache support - second and further scans should be a lot faster than
  the first one
- CLI frontend - for easy automation
- GUI frontend - uses modern GTK 3 and looks similar to FSlint

  - Same Music - Searches for music with same artist, album etc.
  - Invalid Symbolic Links - Shows symbolic links which points to
    non-existent files/directories
  - Broken Files - Finds files with an invalid extension or that are

This should close RFP: #1006181

fslint which did a similar job was removed from bullseye because it required
python2. This is a alternative/replacement.

Should be maintained by rust team.
