How to find orphaned packages?

I am looking for audio orphaned packages in https://src.fedoraproject.org/
Is there any “command” to find all the orphaned packages since the beginning of Fedora ?

Orphaned packages are handed over the orphan user:

OK, thanks, I didn’t notice the part related to the orphan user.
Currently logged and trying to get the list of package owned by orphan :slight_smile:

OK, there is a problem with the orphan user. There are a little bit more than 10000 packages atteched to it and it’s impossible to list these package, I meet time out error each time I try to list these packages on:

I think that’s better queried through the API. There’s a script in Overview - fedora-misc-package-utilities - Pagure.io that might do the trick.

Thanks, the script worked !
On small remark: “python37” was hardcoded in the shebang. The script worked fine with python3 on Fedora 36.

That might be a relic from the past. Feel free to submit a PR, but don’t count on getting a quick response. The repo is more like: here are some handy scripts - help yourself - bend it to your own needs it seems.
