pkgcheck – CTAN package checker

Packages uploaded to CTAN will be checked by the CTAN team before they get installed.

This package provides the pkgckeck command line utility used by CTAN members for carrying out those checks that can be performed in an automated way.

pkgcheck is a 64-bit static Linux binary, and runs out of the box. The only prerequisites are that unzip and pdfinfo be available.

A Windows version is not planned.
