cvs-debrelease - upload a cvs-buildpackage/cvs-debuild generated package
cvs-debrelease [cvs-debrelease options] [--dopts [dupload/dput options]]
cvs-debrelease is run from the CVS working directory after cvs-buildpackage or cvs-debuild. It uses the cvs-buildpackage system to locate the .changes file generated in that run. It then uploads the package using debrelease(1), which in turn calls either dupload or dput. Note that the --dopts option must be specified to distinguish the cvs-debrelease options from the dupload or dput options. Also, the devscripts configuration files will be read, as described in the debrelease(1) manpage.
Note that unlike cvs-buildpackage, the only way to specify the source package name is with the -P option; you cannot simply have it as the last command-line parameter.
All current cvs-buildpackage options are silently accepted; however, only the ones listed below have any effect. For more details on all of them, see the cvs-buildpackage(1) manpage. All debrelease options (as listed below) are also accepted.
|This specifies which uploader program to use; the default is dupload.|
|See dpkg-architecture(1) for a description of these options. They affect the search for the .changes file. They are provided to mimic the behaviour of dpkg-buildpackage when determining the name of the .changes file.|
|-Mmodule||The name of the CVS module.|
|The name of the package.|
|The version number of the package.|
|-Ttag||The CVS tag to use for exporting sources.|
|Root of the original sources archive.|
|The full path name for the cvs-buildpackage working directory.|
|-xprefix||This option provides the CVS default module prefix.|
|Do not read any configuration files. This can only be used as the first option given on the command-line.|
|Show help message and version information respectively.|
