DESCRIPTION

sw-collector extracts information about software package installation, update or removal events from the apt history log and stores the software events in an SQLite database. The retrieved history information is then merged and made consistent with the actual list of installed software packages obtained with dpkg-query.

Set debug level, default: 2.
-q, --quiet
Disable debug output to stderr.
