popbugs - find RC bugs in packages you commonly use

popbugs [options] [popularity-contest log]

The popbugs program fetches the list of release critical bugs from the Debian bug tracking system on the internet. It correlates the bug log with the popularity-contest data from your system to obtain a list of release critical bugs in packages, which are commonly used on your system. Normally this list is displayed in a web browser. Helping to resolve these bugs is a good idea, if you want to see your favourite programs in the next stable release of Debian.

Show a very short usage message.
Place the output in outputfile instead of displaying it in a browser.
Output debugging information.
