wnpp-check(1) check if a package is being packaged or if this has been requested


wnpp-check [--exact] package ...
wnpp-check --help|--version


wnpp-check downloads the lists of packages which are listed as being packaged (ITPed) or for which a package has been requested (RFPed) from the WNPP website and lists any packages supplied on the command line which appear in those lists.

Note that WNPP, and therefore wnpp-check's output, is source package based.


--help, -h

--version, -v
Show version and copyright information.
--exact, -e
Require an exact package name match, rather than the default substring match.


None of the packages supplied has an open ITP or RFP
Either an error occurred or at least one package supplied has an open ITP or RFP
