cvs-debrelease — upload a cvs-buildpackage/cvs-debuild generated package

Synopsis

cvs-debrelease [cvs-debrelease options] [--dopts [dupload/dput options]]

Description

cvs-debrelease is run from the CVS working directory after cvs-buildpackage or cvs-debuild.  It uses the cvs-buildpackage system to locate the .changes file generated in that run.  It then uploads the package using debrelease(1), which in turn calls either dupload or dput.  Note that the --dopts option must be specified to distinguish the cvs-debrelease options from the dupload or dput options.  Also, the devscripts configuration files will be read, as described in the debrelease(1) manpage.

Note that unlike cvs-buildpackage, the only way to specify the source package name is with the -P option; you cannot simply have it as the last command-line parameter.

Options

All current cvs-buildpackage options are silently accepted; however, only the ones listed below have any effect.  For more details on all of them, see the cvs-buildpackage(1) manpage.  All debrelease options (as listed below) are also accepted.

--dupload, --dput

This specifies which uploader program to use; the default is dupload.

-adebian-architecture, -tGNU-system-type

See dpkg-architecture(1) for a description of these options. They affect the search for the .changes file.  They are provided to mimic the behaviour of dpkg-buildpackage when determining the name of the .changes file.

-Mmodule

The name of the CVS module.

-Ppackage

The name of the package.

-Vversion

The version number of the package.

-Ttag

The CVS tag to use for exporting sources.

-Rroot directory

Root of the original sources archive.

-Wwork directory

The full path name for the cvs-buildpackage working directory.

-xprefix

This option provides the CVS default module prefix.

--no-conf, --noconf

Do not read any configuration files.  This can only be used as the first option given on the command-line.

--help, --version

Show help message and version information respectively.
