dedupdedup is a program to find duplicate programs for finding duplicate files on the filesystem. It looks through the Debian package archive and the open ITP bugs to find programs that find duplicate files. It can then optionally close the ITP bugs, and file bugs against ftp-master.debian.org to get such programs to be removed from the archive.

Not all duplicate file finder programs are exact copies of each other, so dedupdedup embeds a simple AI system to compare programs, based on package descriptions, --help output, and manual pages, to verify that only the most complete of such programs remains.
