apt-wishlist ============ Description ----------- In Debian(-based systems), only root can install software by using APT. This utility allows you to let your sysadmin know the packages you suggest should be installed in the system. The list of packages is sent as a local email to root or to the user that is aliased to receive mail for root. Install ------- You may install apt-wishlist system-wide with the following command: # python setup.py install Usage ----- On a terminal, use the following command to send a list of packages you want to ask your system administrator to install: $ apt-wishlist PACKAGES... If you just want to save the packages to send them later or to manipulate the list somehow, you may use the save option for that: $ apt-wishlist save PACKAGES... This "wishlist" is saved under $HOME/.config/apt-wishlist/wishes. Using the command above will overwrite any previous wishlist that has been saved before, so be careful. To send the saved wishlist to your system administrator, just type in: $ apt-wishlist send-saved And to delete the wishlist: $ apt-wishlist delete-saved Contribute ---------- Not sure if there's too much room for improvements, but if you have any ideas, the GitHub repository is at https://github.com/emvigo/apt-wishlist/ There you may take a look at the Issues tracker to find out about things you may contribute with.
