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
- Providing easy access to the available data
- Make often used relations of the data sources available via a web site
As for point 1, the database is currently hosted on a private, non-debian.org host. For Debian Developers, read-only access is available from master.debian.org using a guest account: psql -h sappho.ayous.org -U guest udd. If you want to work on the DB itself, contact the ayous.org admin team ((he|aba|zobel)@debian.org).
As for point 2, see [ http://udd.debian.net ]
