I would like to go over my packages and double-check whether I am using any that haven't been updated (by the authors) in a long time.
Related to this:
- How do I get a list of obsolete packages? asks about packages that do no longer have a version in the package repositories.
- How to see packages installed on a given date using aptitude and many others talk about installation dates
I am interested in the date the package was changed on the server, not on my computer.
I don't have high hopes since I couldn't find such a date in any of the
apt-cache commands I have tried so far and
apt-get doesn't seem to be better suited either. Is this possible somehow?
Afterthought: The changelogs in Synaptic contain the dates I want. Would I have to download all of them and somehow process those in a script?
