Ultimate Debian Database

Ultimate Debian Database (UDD) for short is an ongoing effort to create a relational database to encode information about Debian items (packages, bugs, popularity, ...).

It is currently being worked on as [wiki:SummerOfCode2008/UltimateDebianDatabase Google Summer of Code 2008 project].

The ultimate goal is to support Quality Assurance of the Debian Project, by

  1. Providing easy access to the available data
  2. Make often used relations of those data sources available via a web site

As for point 1, see [wiki:?/HowToConnect our Connection ?HowTo] (has yet to be written)

As for point 2, see [ http://udd.debian.net ]

Resources

  • [wiki:?/HowToConnect Connection ?HowTo]

  • [wiki:?/DataSources data sources] we want to be injected in the db

  • [wiki:/udd.debian.net wiki entry] on [ http://udd.debian.net ]
