Debian Data Export (DDE)
DDE, Debian Data Export, is a system to make it easy to publish data.
DDE is not operational at the moment and looking for a new home.
Getting started, quick & dirty
DDE publishes Debian information so that you can easily see what is available and get the data that you need in a variety of formats.
The quickest way to discover DDE is to visit one DDE site and browse around: every DDE setup is self-documenting, and has instruction on how to use it. Try for example have a look at http://dde.debian.net/dde/
