Name

gbp-clone -- Clone a repository from remote

Synopsis

gbp clone [--version] [--help] [--verbose] [--color=[auto|on|off]] [--color-scheme=COLOR_SCHEME] [--all] [--[no-]pristine-tar] [--debian-branch=branch_name] [--upstream-branch=branch_name] [--depth=depth] remote_uri

DESCRIPTION

gbp clone clones a remote repository and sets up tracking branches for the debian, upstream and pristine-tar branches. This way you can easily update later using gbp pull.

OPTIONS

--version

Print version of the program, i.e. version of the git-buildpackage suite

-v, --verbose

Verbose execution

-h, --help

Print help and exit

--color=[auto|on|off]

Whether to use colored output.

--color-scheme=COLOR_SCHEME

Colors to use in output (when color is enabled). The format for COLOR_SCHEME is '<debug>:<info>:<warning>:<error>'. Numerical values and color names are accepted, empty fields imply the default color. For example --git-color-scheme='cyan:34::' would show debug messages in cyan, info messages in blue and other messages in default (i.e. warning and error messages in red).

--all

Track all branches, not only debian and upstream.

--debian-branch=branch_name

The branch in the Git repository the Debian package is being developed on, default is master.

--upstream-branch=branch_name

The branch in the Git repository the upstream sources are put onto. Default is upstream.

--depth=depth

Git history depth, for creating shallow git clones.

--pristine-tar

Track pristine tar branch.

CONFIGURATION FILES

Several gbp.conf files are parsed to set defaults for the above commandline arguments. See the gbp.conf(5) manpage for details.
