NAME

404main - check if all build dependencies of a package are in main

SYNOPSIS

404main <package name> [<distribution>]

DESCRIPTION

404main is a script that can be used to check if a package and all its build dependencies are in Ubuntu’s main component or not.

CAVEATS

404main will take the dependencies and build dependencies of the packages from the distribution you have first in your /etc/apt/sources.list file.
Also, because of this the <distribution> option is NOT trustworthy; if the dependencies changed YOU WILL GET INCORRECT RESULTS.
