I do software development for a living and as a hobby (examples). My favorite language (and ecosystem) is Python, and my OS of choice is Debian.

comment How to search for packages that are no longer available for installation?
Actually, autoclean just removes packages from the cache. It doesn't uninstall them. Remember the cache is where packages are kept so they don't have to be re-fetched from a repo in case of a re-install.
