NAMEdebrelease - a wrapper around dupload or dput
SYNOPSISdebrelease [debrelease options] [dupload/dput options]
DESCRIPTIONdebrelease is a simple wrapper around dupload or dput. It is called from within the source code tree of a package, and figures out the current version of a package. It then looks for the corresponding .changes file (which lists the files needed to upload in order to release the package) in the parent directory of the source code tree and calls dupload or dput with the .changes file as parameter in order to perform the actual uploading.
Options may be given to debrelease; except for the ones listed below, they are passed on unchanged to dupload or dput. The devscripts configuration files are also read by debrelease as described below.
CONFIGURATION VARIABLESThe two configuration files /etc/devscripts.conf and ~/.devscripts are sourced in that order to set configuration variables. Command line options can be used to override configuration file settings. Environment variable settings are ignored for this purpose. The currently recognised variable is:
