tagpending man page

tagpending — 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.
