DESCRIPTION

gbp tag tags the current head commit appropriately. It will in order:

  • Verify that it is being executed from the Debian branch.

  • Verify that the repository doesn't contain any uncommitted source changes.

  • Create a git tag using the information from debian/changelog.

  • (Optionally) call a post tag hook.

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).

--posttag=COMMAND

Execute COMMAND after creating the tag.

Exported environment variables are: GBP_TAG (the name of the generated tag), GBP_BRANCH (the branch the package was build from) and GBP_SHA1 (the sha1 of the commit the tag was created at).

--[no-]sign-tags

GPG sign all created tags.

--keyid=GPG-KEYID

Use this keyid for gpg signing tags.

--debian-tag=TAG-FORMAT

Use this tag format when tagging Debian™ versions, default is debian/%(version)s.

--debian-tag-msg=tag-msg-format

Use this tag message format when signing Debian™ versions, default is %(pkg)s Debian release %(version)s

--retag

Don't fail tag operations if a tag with the same version already exists. This is a command line only option that cannot be specified via gbp.conf.

--debian-branch=BRANCH_NAME

If you're not on this branch when invoking gbp tag it will fail. Default is master. This is done to make sure you don't accidentally tag on the wrong branch. Not being on this branch will be ignored when using --ignore-branch.

--ignore-branch

Don't check if the current branch matches DEBIAN-BRANCH.

--[no-]ignore-new

Don't abort if there are uncommitted changes in the source tree or the current branch doesn't match the DEBIAN-BRANCH.

EXAMPLES

Create a tag with the current defaults

      gbp tag
    

Create using a more upstreamish tag format:

      gbp tag --debian-tag='v%(version)s'
    

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.
