NAME

debrsign - remotely sign a Debian changes and dsc file pair using SSH  

SYNOPSIS

debrsign [options] [user@]remotehost [changes-file|dsc-file]  

DESCRIPTION

debrsign takes either an unsigned .dsc file or an unsigned .changes file and the associated unsigned .dsc file (found by replacing the architecture name and .changes by .dsc) if it appears in the .changes file and signs them by copying them to the remote machine using ssh(1) and remotely running debsign(1) on that machine. All options not listed below are passed to the debsign program on the remote machine.

If a .changes or .dsc file is specified, it is signed, otherwise, debian/changelog is parsed to determine the name of the .changes file to look for in the parent directory.

This utility is useful if a developer must build a package on one machine where it is unsafe to sign it; they need then only transfer the small .dsc and .changes files to a safe machine and then use the debsign program to sign them before transferring them back. This program automates this process.  

OPTIONS

-S
Look for a source-only .changes file instead of a binary-build changes file.
-adebian-architecture, -tGNU-system-type
See dpkg-architecture(1) for a description of these options. They affect the search for the .changes file.
--help, --version
Show help message and version information respectively.
Other options
All other options are passed on to debuild on the remote machine.
