namcap is an utility for Arch Linux which helps in automatic detection of common mistakes and errors in PKGBUILDs. 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 Template:Filename.
  • The packages in core, extra and community are put in files named core, extra and community respectively (using Template:Codeline).
  • Template:Filename takes the code and prepares the report and RSS feeds, which is then copied to the webserver.

The code can be found in Git:
