gbp-export-orig — Export upstream tarballs from a Git™ repository

Synopsis

gbp export-orig [--verbose] [--color=[auto|on|off]] [--color-scheme=COLOR_SCHEME] [--upstream-branch=TREEISH] [--[no-]submodules] [--upstream-tag=tag-format] [--upstream-tree=[TAG|BRANCH|TREEISH]] [--tarball-dir=DIRECTORY] [--force-create] [--compression=TYPE] [--compression-level=LEVEL] [--component=component...] [--[no-]pristine-tar]

DESCRIPTION

gbp export-orig is used to export upstream tarballs from a Git™ repository. Usually upstream tarballs are created by gbp buildpackage when needed but if you don't want to perform a build you can use this command.

OPTIONS

--verbose

verbose execution

--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 --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).

--upstream-branch=BRANCH_NAME

Branch to build the orig tarball from if --upstream-tree is set to BRANCH. Default is upstream.

--[no-]submodules

Include git submodules in the orig tarball.

--upstream-tag=TAG-FORMAT

Use this tag format when looking for tags of upstream versions, default is upstream/%(version)s.

--force-create

Force creation of an orig tarball (overwriting a pre-existing one if present).

--upstream-tree=[BRANCH|TAG|TREEISH]

How to find the upstream sources used to generate the tarball. TAG (the default) looks at a tag corresponding to the version in the changelog. BRANCH looks at the upstream branch given via the --upstream-branch option.

Other values are interpreted as treeishs.

This doesn't have any effect if --pristine-tar is being used.

--tarball-dir=DIRECTORY

Search for original tarballs in DIRECTORY instead of generating them.

--compression=TYPE

Specifies the upstream tarball compression type. This will be used to locate and build the upstream tarball if necessary. The default is auto which derives the compression type from the pristine-tar branch if available and falls back to gzip otherwise. Other options are gzip, bzip2, lzma and xz.

--compression-level=LEVEL

Specifies the upstream tarball compression level if an upstream tarball needs to be built.

--component=COMPONENT

When generating tarballs create an additional original tarball of directory COMPONENT in the source tree. Using additional original tarballs is a feature of the 3.0 (quilt) source format. See the dpkg-source manpage for details. Note that the --pristine-tar-commit option is currently incompatible with this option.

This is considered an experimental feature and might change incompatibly.

--pristine-tar

Use pristine-tar when generating the upstream tarball if it doesn't exist.

EXAMPLES

Generate an upstream tarball of the version currently referenced in the changelog using pristine-tar™:

      gbp export-orig --pristine-tar
    

Same as above but generate and additional tarball for directory foo.

      gbp export-orig --pristine-tar --component=foo
    

CONFIGURATION FILES

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