Re: Querying Debian release and dpkg database with SNMP?

Quoting Christian Hammers <ch@debian.org>:

Not that I know of, but I'll be happy to create one.

So what you need/want is:

 1. package name
 2. package version
 3. description
 4. package status (installed, removed, purged etc)
 5. priority
 6. section
 7. maintainer
 8. source
 9. depends
10. recommends

These not necessarily in one table though...

Not at all. I'd be happy to create one. But what was that about WRITABLE
