After some time in the experimental distribution I've uploaded git-buildpackage 0.9.0 to sid a couple of weeks ago and were now at 0.9.2 as of today. This brought in two new commands:
gbp export-orig to regenerate tarballs based on the current version in debian/changelog. This was always possible by using gbp buildpackage and ignoring the build result e.g.
gbp buildpackage --git-builder=/bin/true …but having a separate command is much more straight forward.
gbp push to push everything related to the current version in debian/changelog: debian-tag, debian-branch, upstream-branch, upstream-tag, pristine-tar branch. This could already be achieved by a posttag hook but having it separate is again more straight forward and reduces the numer of knobs one has to tweak.
We moved to better supported tools:
- Switch to Python3 from Python2
- Switch from epydoc to pydoctor
- Finally switch from Docbook SGML to Docbook XML (we ultimately want to switch to Sphinx at one point but this will be much simpler now).
We added integration with pk4:
mkdir -p ~/.config/pk4/hooks-enabled/unpack/
ln -s /usr/share/pk4/hooks-available/unpack/gbp ~/.config/pk4/hooks-enabled/unpack/
so pk4 invokes gbp import-dsc on package import.
There were lots of improvements all over the place like gbp pq now
importing the patch queue on switch (if it's not already there) and gbp
import-dsc and import-orig not creating pointless master branches
if debian-branch != 'master'. And after being broken in the early
gbp buildpackage --git-overlay ... should be much better
supported now that we have proper tests.
All in all 26 bugs fixed. Thanks to everybody who contributed bug reports and fixes.
