Project Description


  • Having bash completion in Emacs shell-mode is a bit slow but it is also nice, as it provides for a lot of things like 'apt-get inst...' etc.
  • Start trying to handle situations more optimally again, like we did when first starting out. For instance, how many times have we read through the CPAN or 'apt-cache search .' output, without recording to which different systems they should be integrated with. Need to get ahead of the curve again.
  • Work on a recommendation system which recommends software for a task. For instance, if you use mbox files, you may wish to consider mboxgrep, although it's just listed as a package, with no way to recommend that to (well perhaps besides the package recommends in the apt database). Use the package recommends and other field to train the recommender system. For starters - make it much more complete - by having more criteria and rules for suggesting packages.
  • Set up a basic thing for score to penalize for certain actions in log files, for instance apt-get install mozilla
  • Some things to fix: (apt-utils-show-package \C-rd), as well as make it so radar checks to see if something is installed, available, etc.
  • Write the people at apt-get.org seeing if they want to collaborate on something.
  • Remove web-analytics and "apt".
  • Create a daemonized version of apt-cache, no?
  • cron-apt for automating "apt-get upgrade"
  • Setup regular apt-get upgrading
  • Note that RADAR appears to check CPAN before it even checks apt-get for perl modules, this is suboptimal.
  • I wish apt-get would show what the current version of the packages being replaced was.
  • use auto-apt with predator
  • We need to make more use of web services, we have to index them, and use them. Perhaps, they could interact with UniLang using wrapper agents. In any case, we need to take account of these services, locate them, and use them. We also need to identify existing ones, such as CPAN, deb apt archive, google, altavista-translation, gutenburg, uh-oh, etc.
  • On the other hand, I wrote a perl script, and it had some missing dependencies, so I ran a script I just wrote, and it found the dependencies, determined whether they were available from apt-get, and since they weren't downloaded them from CPAN and packaged them for debian, and installed them. Not bad... In the dream, I was also fixing a boat, after another one had careened off and nearly destroyed it. The video was shown to the owner of the first larger boat, pranking him that his boat had nearly been destroyed, when in fact the video had been shot for a movie, involving his boat, and was very well planned out in advance.
  • add apt-get update to the crontab
  • Come up with presentation that details apt/packaging.
  • 5754 Howe Street apt 3. (Thanksgiving dinner)
  • an idea for the apt-get.org logo is a debian swirl comprised of smaller debian swirls, going around the planet earth
  • How does one query where a particular package is available from? That would be apt-cache. I think it worthwhile that soon, I should sit down and review the manuals of the most frequent and important systems.
  • Status: Available through apt-get, yet sudo apt-get install libnet-google-perl says its already the latest.
  • The current method in apt of searching key words is a little too primitive.
  • Send Florin Manoloche a link to my site. Say, I was mistaken about my imminent position at CMU, I apologize. I wanted to thank you for your help. Here is my work as it has turned out. It was the cyc-mode I was writing at the time you were so generous as to host my server. (I needed the memory since my laptop was too small). My mission is to make packages out of existing software for Debian, and maintain a repository of rough packages. I think this will aid research since it will make it easier for people to compare contrast and use various packages. It will make it as easy as saying apt-get install this or that. So, just wanted to say thanks again, and to show you where I am right now. Things are going well, we now have a project of 5 people and we are focusing on recruitment. Obviously we look up to CMU as our role model, that is of course the deciding factor in our decision to do this in Pittsburgh.
  • libxerces2-java does some kind of normalization as reported by apt-cache search -f, but probably not the correct kind, anyway, this so called feature request should be put in the appropriate list. really, in addition to PSE, we really have to write NLP systems to recognize problems, feature requests, etc.
  • it make some packages out of things that are not in apt, but are in the perl distribution, so that check must go in there.
  • is apt-got aware of apt-proxy
  • can you call "apt-get update http://debian.jdff.adf", i.e., on one source at a time.
  • is there a perl interface to apt? libapt-perl?
  • could make a chroot jail for apt-get for apt-sources
  • madison-lite useful to apt-sources
  • and apt-sources
  • debootstrap should be used for apt-sources to create the base system. check into relation to pbuilder
  • auto-apt should be used to allow dynamic selection of frdcsa system capabilities
  • I have written two systems just now. One extracts sources from apt-get.org, the other gathers a corpus of my thoughts files together
  • for now simply use atd and crontab, make an frdcsa crontab, to schedule system things, like daily updating sources for apt-sources
  • Add a mode to RADAR to search and apt repository.
