Description

rebase-helper is a tool which helps package maintainers to rebase their packages to latest upstream versions.

It should be executed from a directory containing spec file, sources and patches (usually cloned dist-git repository).

The new version is specified by SOURCES argument, which can be either version number or filename of the new source archive. Starting with version 0.10.0, this argument can be omitted and the new version determined automatically using one of available versioneers.
