debtags-edit - Search and categorize Debian packages


debtags-edit [options]


debtags-edit is GUI application to search and categorize Debian packages using both the APT and the Debtags databases. Its purpose is to make it easy and fast for everyone to contribute to the Debian packages categorization.

When run, debtags-edit accesses the APT database and the Debtags database to provide package search functionality. Clicking on a result of the search displays the package details and allows to add or remove tags to the package.

Together with the package details is a list of related packages, computed using Debian Package Tags. If wrong packages show up in the related packages box, then it's a symptom of poor categorization: go at it!

If the environment variable DEBEMAIL is set on startup, debtags-edit will consider you a Debian Developer and will start with the filter setup to look for your packages. If DEBEMAIL is not set, then the filter is initialized to show only installed packages.

debtags-edit is able to save your changes in a tag patch file inside the directory ~/.debtags/. The tag patch file is a smart patch format which can be applied to any version of the Debtags archive, so your changes will remain valid after you run debtags update. debtags-edit will automatically save your changes on exit, or when you invoke the Save function.

TODO: submission of local modifications for inclusion in the central tag archive.

Please see debtags(1) for informations on Debian Package Tags. Please see tagcoll(1) for a description of a tagged collection and of the format of the tag patch. Please see tagcoll-edit(1) for a program to perform massive edits on a tagged collection.

debtags-edit has been written by Enrico Zini <> for the purpose of experimenting with tagged collections and related algorithms: all possible feedback and ideas are thus more than welcome.

créer en lui une structure correspondant à celle du savoir.
