NAME

package-tracker - Compare and track package versions in debian repositories

DESCRIPTION

A common, but not unique pattern for derivatives is that of reusing/rebuilding most of the official Debian packages and adding some custom packages of their own. — Wikipedia (https://wiki.debian.org/Derivatives/)
 
package-tracker is desinged to compare apt(1) archives from a derrivate (debian extending repositories) against their parent ones. A such it is possible to track changes in versions in other archives.
