DUCK processes several of the fields in the debian/control and debian/upstream files of all Debian source packages on a regular basis, currently once a day. It extracts the URLs found therein and checks if those URLs are available. The results of the last 6 check runs are displayed.
What is monitored
Currently, all source package files from sid/main are processed.
The files are taken from http://ftp.tugraz.at/mirror/debian/ once a day. Results are available for the last 5 days.The following URLs are monitored (if applicable):
- The following types of VCS-fields:
- Vcs-Svn (Subversion)
- Vcs-Hg (Mercurial)
- Vcs-Git (Mercurial)
- Urls from Upstream Metadata - currently the following fields:
What is shown
All packages, whose check results failed at least 3 times during the last 6 days are reported as "having issues".
This helps to avoid false positives caused by DNS issues, network/uplink problems and all the other strange things that happen on the internet. So if you see only some entries, don't worry.
This also means that if URLs are fixed in debian/control or upstream-metadata files, it will take 4 days (worst case) to get the corresponding packages removed from this list. So please be patient.
Empty columns indicate that the package was not yet there on the given day. See https://packages.debian.org/unstable/main/newpkg for the latest new packages in unstable.
A plaintext list of all packages with issues is available here.
