Umegaya — MEtadata GAtherer using YAml
======================================

Umegaya is a gatherer of meta information about the software packaged in
Debian.  This metadata is accumlated by the package maintainer in the version
control system containing the Debian souce package, in a file called
[`debian/upstream/metadata`](http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep12), and it is
collected by the Umegaya web service each time it is accessed.  The Umegaya web
service then aggregates information about all the packages it knows, and
outputs as tables or YAML records that can be loaded in central information
hubs like the [Ultimate Debian Database](https://udd.debian.org/).  Optionally,
Umegaya will keep a local copy if the files it retrieves from the VCS.  See
also [[!debwiki UpstreamMetadata]] on the Debian wiki.

Umegaya is distributed under the BOLA [[LICENSE]].

See the [[setup]] and [[man]] pages for more documentation, the [[todo]] list,
and of course the [source code](http://source.umegaya.branchable.com/?p=source.git;a=tree).
