NAME¶dput - Debian package upload tool
SYNOPSIS¶dput [-h] [-d] [-c FILE] [-D] [-e DAYS] [-F] [-f] [-l] [-U] [-o] [-O OVERRIDE] [-S UNSET] [-P] [-s] [-u] [-v] [-V] [HOST] CHANGES-FILE [CHANGES-FILE ...]
DESCRIPTION¶dput-ng is a Debian package upload tool which provides an easy to use interface to Debian (like) package archive hosting facilities. It allows anyone who works with Debian packages to upload their work to a remote service, including Debian’s ftp-master, mentors.debian.net, Launchpad or other package hosting facilities for Debian package maintainers.
HOST may optionally specify a target stanza from any configured configured profile which is selected as a upload target. If HOST is omitted a default host using the heuristic described below is selected.
The only mandatory argument is a CHANGES-FILE which is interpreted as a Debian package.changes file denoting the desired package to be uploaded.
Packages being uploaded already, but not processed yet can be removed later from the destination using dcut.
This option is a shortcut for --override "run_lintian=true"
This option accepts any key which can be configured in a profile (see *dput(5)*). Sub keys are addressed using a dot notation. Keys are separated using a equals sign ("=").
For example, to override the 'allow_dcut' you may do:
The '--override' option may be repeated:
--override "check-debs.enforce=debs" --override "check-debs.skip=false"
Providing the same key on the command line several times will be additive.
Un-setting a key entirely can be achieved using the '-S' option. Such overrides take no argument. Thus, the command line
--override "allow_dcut=true" --unset "run_lintian"
will set 'allow_dcut' to 'TRUE' and revert the 'run_lintian' key to whatever the internal default value is set.
This option is a shortcut for --override "passive_ftp=true"
This argument can be repeated twice in which case also the network connection is set-up (for example logging in through the FTP or SFTP protocol) and tested for its functionality.
PROFILES¶Profiles may define upload HOST names, log-in details and their required upload methods used to upload packages. Moreover, profiles define checks which are running before and after uploading. Their format is described in dput(5).
Additionally, dput reads old-style configuration files from INI style configuration files. This format is deprecated for use in dput-ng and described in dput.cf(5). In particular this configuration file format does not support all configurable settings which are specific to dput-ng.
It is possible to run dput with any combination of new-style and old-style configuration files. When both types of files are present,
