namcap is an utility for Arch Linux which helps in automatic detection of common mistakes and errors in PKGBUILDs. namcap-reports (http://abhidg.mine.nu/arch/namcap-reports) is an automatically generated report obtained after running namcap against the core, extra and community trees.

How it works:

  • namcap is run against the entire ABS tree to make namcap.log.
  • The packages in core, extra and community are put in files named core, extra and community respectively (using pacman -Slq)
  • namcap-report.py takes the code and prepares the report and RSS feeds, which is then copied to the webserver.

The code can be found in git (http://github.com/abhidg/namcap-reports).
