Package: feta
Version: 1.4.12
Severity: wishlist

Feta doesn't have an equivelent operation to "apt-get --names-only
search".  Specifically this is frustrating if you are looking for
a package which contains something in it's name but don't want the 
results from a full search.

For example:

# feta search rsh
backuppc - high-performance, enterprise-grade system for backing up PCs
c2hs - C->Haskell Interface Generator
chkrootkit - Checks for signs of rootkits on the local system
clusterssh - administer multiple ssh or rsh shells simultaneously
... many more results (including xrsh) ...

# feta names rsh

This is what I think should work, but it only matches things which begin
with rsh.

This is the behavior which I think is most helpful and is not available
in feta:

# apt-cache --names-only search rsh
cook-rsh - Remote execution scripts for cook
heimdal-clients - Clients for Heimdal Kerberos
heimdal-servers - Servers for Heimdal Kerberos
kerberos4kth-clients - Clients for Kerberos4 From KTH
kerberos4kth-servers - Servers for Kerberos4 From KTH
krb5-rsh-server - Secure replacements for rshd and rlogind  using MIT
powershell - powerful terminal emulator for GNOME
rsh-client - rsh clients.
rsh-redone-client - Reimplementation of rsh and rlogin
rsh-redone-server - Reimplementation of rshd and rlogind
rsh-server - rsh servers.
ssh - Secure rlogin/rsh/rcp replacement (OpenSSH)
ssh-krb5 - Secure rlogin/rsh/rcp replacement (OpenSSH with Kerberos)p
wondershaper - Easy to use traffic shaping script
xrsh - remote execution of XWindow programs

Personally I think it would be great if the "feta names" feature
changed from using "apt-cache pkgnames rsh" to using "apt-cache
--names-only search rsh", but I'm sure that is a matter of preference.

Many thanks,

The feta package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the bugs that were still opened
against it.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/388363 . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.

Kind regards,
Marco Rodrigues
