Re: DUCK - the Debian Url Checker
Zitat von Arno Töll <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
Actually, this list is complete in terms of "broken links" - Currently
I process all packages from sid/main. Packages from contrib & non-free
might be even more interesting :-). I will incorporate that in the
future. Also I will add my checks for the VCS-* in the source packages

Please tell me what you think about it - I have already some more
looks good and useful. Thanks for looking at this! This list isn't
complete, is it? I'm quite surprised how many links are broken though.
I do also wonder what the point of the architecture selection is. The
URL comes from the source package?
No, the url comes from the binary package - I know that one source
package results in possibly one binary package for every arch
supported, but the homepage entries in the source packages sometimes
contain markups and some variable substitution magic which leads to
lots of "false positives". Maybe I rework the result list and just
display a bitfield showing which architectures the package was built
for - we'll see...
Maybe this service should run at
qa.debian.org at some point (but it's not up to me to decide on that),
but I think it would be an useful addition to that.
Yes, good point, Paul Wise alredy suggested hosting it on debian.net -
Also, the usual question for a Debian affiliated project: Where is the
source code? :>
Yes, you are right - I will prettify the whole thing and will publish
it. My announcement of DUCK was also to see if there is some interest
in the project at all. If no one would be interested, I would have
just ditched the whole thing.
I will announce it when I am ready.
