botch-clean-repository(1) clean errors in a repository by removing transitively uninstallable or compilable packages


botch-clean-repository [options] Packages Sources


given a repository of binary packages and source packages, clean up that repository by removing packages that can't be compiled or installed and packages which don't have an associated binary or source package and packages which do not match the specified architecture.

This effectively creates a self contained repository of maximal size.

If a binary package is without a source package but there is a source package of same name but different version, match this binary package to that source package.

Native architecture ARCH
Host architecture arch. Defaults to native architecture.
Comma-separated foreign architectures in addition to native and host architectures.
By default, installing any binary package requires the coinstallation set of all binary packages marked as Essential:yes to be installed as well. This option drops this requirement.


Clean up a repository:

 botch-clean-repository --deb-native-arch=amd64 packages sources > packages-clean
 botch-bin2src --deb-native-arch=amd64 packages-clean sources > sources-clean
