Application and Distribution Data
The database has so called 'community' part, containing
- data about distribution contents (which libraries, interfaces and commands are provided by different distributions).
- data about interfaces and libraries required by applications.
The data is gathered and uploaded to the database using tools developed at ISPRAS. The tools are avalable in the unofficial bzr repository. You may also contact contact ISPRAS team to get the scripts and any kind of support. Data about applications can be also gathered using Linux Application Checker.
