tagpending - Man Page

tags bugs that are to be closed in the latest changelog as pending


tagpending [options]


tagpending parses debian/changelog to determine which bugs would be closed if the package were uploaded. Each bug is then marked as pending, using bts(1) if it is not already so.


-n,  --noact

Check whether any bugs require tagging, but do not actually do so.

-s,  --silent

Do not output any messages.

-v,  --verbose

List each bug checked and tagged in turn.

-f,  --force

Do not query the BTS, but (re)tag all bugs closed in the changelog.


Include the changelog header line and the entries relating to the tagged bugs as comments in the generated mail.  This is the default.

Note that when used in combination with --to, the header line output will always be that of the most recent version.


Do not include changelog entries in the generated mail.

-c,  --confirm

Tag bugs as both confirmed and pending.

-t,  --to version

Parse changelogs for all versions strictly greater than version.

Equivalent to dpkg-parsechangelog's -v option.

-i,  --interactive

Display the message which would be sent to the BTS and, except when --noact was used, prompt for confirmation before sending it.

-w,  --wnpp

For each bug that does not appear to belong to the current package, check whether it is filed against wnpp. If so, tag it. This allows e.g. ITAs and ITPs closed in an upload to be tagged.
