Hi Folks,

Some of the Oslo libraries have a tox test that does the above [0].
This ensures that our requirements.txt file is kept current with the

This test uses a tool called pip_check_reqs [1].  Unfortunately this
tool is not compatible with pip version 10, and it appears as if the
github project hasn't seen any development activity in the last 2
years.  Seems unlikely that pip 10 support will be added anytime soon.

Can anyone recommend a suitable alternative to the pip_check_reqs tool?

Thanks in advance,
