The library defines a very minimal framework in which many sources of data
about Debian packages can be implemented and queried together.
The library includes four data sources:
* APT: access the APT database
* Debtags: access the Debtags tag information
* Popcon: access Popcon package scores
* The Xapian index built by apt-xapian-index
This is the shared library.
