gbp-pristine-tar — Manage pristine-tar commits in a git repository

Synopsis

gbp pristine-tar [--version] [--help] [--verbose] [--color=[auto|on|off]] [--color-scheme=COLOR_SCHEME] [--upstream-tag=tag-format] [--component=component...] [commit] filename

DESCRIPTION

gbp pristine-tar adds the pristine-tar commit for a given upstream tarball to a Git™ repository. This can be useful if a original tarball has been already imported and the pristine-tar commits should be added at a later time or if you're tracking upstream git and want to create pristine-tar commits nevertheless.

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).

--upstream-tag=tag-format

use this tag format when tagging upstream versions, default is upstream/%(version)s

--component=COMPONENT

When creating the pristine-tar commits also look for an additional tarball with component name COMPONENT. E.g. in hello-debhelper_1.0.orig-foo.tar.gz the component name would be foo. The additional tarball is expected to be in the same directory than the upstream tarball and to use the same compression type. This option can be given multiple times to add multiple additional tarballs.

Using additional original tarballs is a feature of the 3.0 (quilt) source format. See the dpkg-source manpage for details. This is currently considered an experimental feature and might change incompatibly.

EXAMPLES

Add pristine-tar commits for an upstream tarball:

      gbp pristine-tar ../upstream-tarball-0.1.tar.gz

Same as above with an additional tarball ../upstream-tarball-foo-0.1.tar.gz:

      gbp pristine-tar --component-tarball=foo ../upstream-tarball-0.1.tar.gz

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.
