This project is no longer being developed. There will be no updates and no security fixes. This page serves archival purposes only.

slackeria takes a list of projects and checks whether they are present in certain places, such as Freshmeat or various distros. If they are, their version is also reported. With this, it is easy to monitor projects and for example notify distributions of updates when they are lagging behind.

Example output:

(Notet that this is not kept up-to-date and is in no way useful to judge a distro's freshness)
