Mancoosi tools for the analysis and quality assurance of FOSS distributions

we will present a set of tools for the analysis and quality assurance of FOSS distributions.

These tools analyse meta-data of packages (like dependencies, build-dependencies, conflicts, etc), and answer questions like:

  • which packages are installable and which are not?
  • for which packages is it possible to install a build environment?
  • which packages are absolutely mandatory for the installation of a package (which might have dependencies with alternatives, or on virtual packages)?
  • which packages will certainly become uninstallable when I upgrade a certain package?

These tools have been developed by the Mancoosi project, continuing the work started during its predecessor project EDOS. This will also include a demo of the new "Weather Service" for distributions.
