Application of Ultimate Debian Database in Debian Pure Blends

Harvesting information about packages for specific work fields

DebConf 9, Cáceres, 26. July 2009


The Debian Pure Blends effort has created web pages with different overviews about the packages which are in the scope of the Blend. On one hand this are so called tasks pages which assemble packages of so called tasks (fields of interest) on one page with certain metainformation. The descriptions are translated by using DDTP translations. Moreover there are bugs pages which enable a quick overview about problematic packages which are used by the Blend. The usage of UDD enables much simpler creation of these pages as well as offering new features. The talk should stress the interlinking between two different techniques inside the Debian universe.
