This package provides update-
apt-xapian- index, a tool to maintain a Xapian
index of Debian package information in /var/lib/
apt-xapian- index, and
axi-cache, a command line search tool that uses the index.

The index generated by update-
apt-xapian- index is self-documenting, as it
contains an autogenerated README file with information on the index layout and
all the data that can be found in it.
