NAME

debrelease - a wrapper around dupload or dput  

SYNOPSIS

debrelease [debrelease options] [dupload/dput options]  

DESCRIPTION

debrelease 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.  

OPTIONS

--dupload, --dput
This specifies which uploader program to use; the default is dupload.
-S
If this option is used, or the default .changes file is not found but a source-only .changes file is present, then this source-only .changes file will be uploaded instead of an arch-specific one.
-adebian-architecture, -tGNU-system-type
See dpkg-architecture(1) for a description of these options. They affect the search for the .changes file. If
--help, --version
Show help message and version information respectively and exit.
 

CONFIGURATION VARIABLES

The 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:
DEBRELEASE_UPLOADER
The currently recognised values are dupload and dput, and it specifies which uploader program should be used. It corresponds to the --dupload and --dput command line options.
