Project description

Author: Pierre-Yves Chibon
Date: Wed Jan 18 2017
Version: 2.14.1

The PackageDB-cli is a commande line interface to the PackageDB of Fedora.


The PackageDB-cli was started in May of 2011 to allow user to consult the package collection and to manage their Access Control List (ACL) using a simple interface web free interface.

At this occasion, it is has been re-written to propose a python module to query pkgdb2 API as well as the pkgdb2client.cli module containing the command line interface and the pkgdb2client.admin module containing a command line interface for admins to interact with pkgdb2.
