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 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 ]
