No. It is not worth the effort. I don't want to add a dependency
on me to remember to update upset whenever there is an addition to
upset is intended to be used to create a setup.ini from the setup.hint
files on sourceware.org. The fact that it is retrievable via CVS is a
side-effect of the fact that that's how most of the admin tools on
sourceware.org are managed.
I'm not interested in turning it into a general purpose tool and I'm not
interested in bug reports, patches, augmentations, etc.
A simple "package lint" tool would be easily doable and it would not
require all of the extra stuff that upset does. Someone should write
one of those.
Some of the above is also. A recording.
