“Wajig is an interface to many Debian administrative tasks. Written in Python, wajig uses traditional Debian administration and user tools including apt-get, dpkg, apt-cache, wget, and others. It is intended to unify and simplify common administrative tasks.” See http://www.togaware.com/wajig/ for more infomation.
I write this package as a wrapper of wajig for Emacs. I love living within Emacs.
Put this file into your load-path and the following into your ~/.emacs:

‘o’for `wajig show’.
‘ido-completing-read’, you don’t have to remember the full name of a package. It is also an ease of typing.
