who-uploads - identify the uploaders of Debian source packages
who-uploads [options] source_package ...
who-uploads uses the Package Tracking System (PTS) to identify the
uploaders of the three most recent versions of the given source packages. Note
that the uploaders are identified using their gpg(1) or gpg2(1)
keys; installing a recent version of the debian-keyring package should
provide most of the required keys.
Note that because the PTS uses source packages, you must give the
source package names, not the binary package names.
- -M, --max-uploads=N
- Specify the maximum number of uploads to display for each package; the
default is 3. Note that you may not see this many uploads if there are not
this many recorded in the PTS.
- --keyring keyring
- Add keyring to the list of keyrings to be searched for the
uploader's GPG key.
- By default, who-uploads uses the two Debian keyrings
/usr/share/keyrings/debian-maintainers.gpg (although this default
can be changed in the configuration file, see below). Specifying this
option means that the default keyrings will not be examined. The
--keyring option overrides this one.
- Show the date of the upload alongside the uploader's details
- --nodate, --no-date
- Do not show the date of the upload alongside the uploader's details. This
is the default behaviour.
- --no-conf, --noconf
- Do not read any configuration files. This can only be used as the first
option given on the command-line.
- --help, -h
- Display a help message and exit successfully.
- Display version and copyright information and exit successfully.
The two configuration files /etc/devscripts.conf and ~/.devscripts
are sourced in that order to set configuration variables. Command line options
can be used to override configuration file settings. Environment variable
settings are ignored for this purpose. The currently recognised variables are:
- Show the date of the upload alongside the uploader's details. By default,
this is "no".
- The maximum number of uploads to display for each package. By default,
this is 3.
- This is a colon-separated list of the default keyrings to be used. By
default, it is the two Debian keyrings
