DESCRIPTION

grep-excuses downloads the update_excuses.html file and greps it for the specified maintainer name or email. The libwww-perl package is required for this script.

OPTIONS

--help

--version

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:
GREP_EXCUSES_MAINTAINER
The default maintainer, email or package to grep for if none is specified on the command line.
