wnpp-check - Man Page

check if a package is being packaged or if this has been requested


wnpp-check [--exact] package ...
wnpp-check --help|--version


wnpp-check downloads the lists of packages which are listed as being packaged (ITPed) or for which a package has been requested (RFPed) from the WNPP website and lists any packages supplied on the command line which appear in those lists.

Note that WNPP, and therefore wnpp-check's output, is source package based.

--help,  -h

--version,  -v
