# PET - Package Entropy Tracker

PET is a collection of scripts that gather information about your (or your group’s) packages. It allows you to see in a bird’s eye view the health of hundreds of packages, instantly realizing where work is needed.

The code is at, database dumps can be found at

Discussions go on the [pet-devel]( mailing list.

There are two ways to install Pet. With or without vagrant. Choose one and follow the next steps to install.

## Installation using Vagrant

Vagrant is a tool for building complete development environments. With an easy-to-use workflow and focus on automation, Vagrant lowers development environment setup time, increases development/production parity, and makes the “works on my machine” excuse a relic of the past. [Official Site Reference](

Vagrant can be installed with the command: apt-get install vagrant. And all the binaries are in this page [Vagrant Download](

To install PET, it is necessary to clone the repository and start vagrant:

$ git clone

$ cd pet/

Now, it is necessary to start vagrant up and access vagrants ssh. Follow this commands: $ vagrant up

$ vagrant ssh

$ sudo su - pet

To start the web interface, execute:

$ ./pet-serve

To access it: [http://localhost:4567/pkg-perl/pet.cgi](http://localhost:8080/pkg-perl/pet.cgi)

## Installation without Vagrant ### Requirements Install this softwares according to your operation system: * postgresql-9.4 * postgresql-9.4-debversion * python-argparse * python-debian * python-debianbts * python-inotifyx * python-paste * python-psycopg2 * python-pyramid * python-sqlalchemy * python-subversion * wget

### Quick Start As root (waiting for python-pyramid-chameleon package,

$ pip install pyramid_chameleon

As root (more precise: as a postgres superuser):

$ su postgres

$ createuser pet

Shall the new role be a superuser? (y/n) n

Shall the new role be allowed to create databases? (y/n) y

Shall the new role be allowed to create more new roles? (y/n) n

$ createdb -O pet pet

$ psql pet < /usr/share/postgresql/9.4/contrib/debversion.sql

As the created user:

$ ./pet-update -c

$ psql pet

pet=> INSERT INTO team (name, maintainer, url) VALUES (‘pkg-perl’, ‘Debian Perl Group <>’, ‘’);

pet=> INSERT INTO repository (name, type, root, web_root, team_id) VALUES (‘git’,’git’,’’,’’, 1);

pet=> INSERT INTO package (name, repository_id) VALUES (‘clive’, 1);

pet=> INSERT INTO archive (name, url, web_root) VALUES (‘debian’, ‘’, ‘’);

pet=> INSERT INTO suite (archive_id, name) VALUES (1, ‘unstable’);

pet=> q

$ ./update-package libboolean-perl

$ ./update-bts

$ ./update-archive debian

To start the web interface:

$ ./pet-serve

To access it: [http://localhost:8080/pkg-perl/pet.cgi](http://localhost:8080/pkg-perl/pet.cgi)

# Update Repository To get the packages, it is necessary to update your local repository. $ update-repository x

x is a positive integer of the repository. e.g. pass 1. This command will return all packages.

Now, update the packages with the names printed on $ update-repository x. Follow this command:

$ update-package packages_name

After updating all packages, run:

$ ./update-bts
