gbp import-dsc
[options] [--[no-]allow-unauthenticated] URL [target]

DESCRIPTION

gbp import-dsc imports a Debian source package into a Git repository, notes the package version in the commit logs, and commits the change. All information, including package name, version, Debian modifications and upstream source, is automatically detected from the source package. After import the repository can be used with the other gbp tools.

If the command is run from within an existing Git repository, it will import into it; if not, a new repository named as the Debian source package is created. You can override the location of the new repository by specifying the optional target argument.

When given a URL gbp import-dsc will download the source package prior to importing it. dget is used for all schemes except for the special scheme apt:/// which uses apt-get (and therefore needs deb-src entries in your /etc/apt/sources.list). The later can be abbreviated by using the pseudo URL apt:.

OPTIONS

Print version of the program, i.e. version of the git-buildpackage suite
Verbose execution
Print help and exit
Whether to use colored output.
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).
The branch in the Git repository the upstream sources are put onto. Default is upstream.
The branch in the Git repository the debian sources are put onto. Default is master.
--[no-]sign-tags
GPG sign all created tags
Use this keyid for gpg signing tags.
Use this tag format when tagging Debian versions, default is debian/%(version)s.
Use this tag format when tagging upstream versions, default is upstream/%(version)s.
Add tag-format as additional parent to the commit of the upstream tarball. Useful when upstream uses git and you want to link to its revision history. The tag-format can be a pattern similar to what --upstream-tag supports.

The default is to not add upstream tags as additional parents since this requires additional setup to have the upstream sources in the same repository.

Don't create Debian tag after importing the Debian patch. This can be useful if you already created a package but want to further work on it after importing it into git.
Filter out files glob-matching pattern from upstream tarballs and the debian tarball of 3.0(quilt) packages. Note that the .diff.gz of 1.0 source format packages is currently not filtered.

This option can be given multiple times.

Generate pristine-tar delta file.
Whether to skip signature verification on downloads. Passed on verbatim to dget and apt-get respectively. Use with care.
Allow one to import a package with the same debian version.
When importing the Debian patch, use the author identity as committer identity.
When importing the Debian patch, use the author date as committer date.
Warning

Git will subtly misbehave if the committer date of a commit is not later than or equal to all its parents.

--[no-]create-missing-branches
Create upstream and debian branch if missing.
When set to DEBIAN use the DEBUSER environment variable to set the user.name Git configuration otherwise use Git's defaults. Only affects newly created repos.
When set to DEBIAN use the DEBEMAIL environment variable to set the user.email Git configuration otherwise use Git's defaults. Only affects newly created repos.

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.

EXAMPLES

Download and import a source package from a URL:


gbp import-dsc http://http.debian.net/debian/pool/main/h/hello/hello_2.10-1.dsc

Download and import a source package via apt-get source from unstable:


gbp import-dsc apt:hello/sid

Import a source package in the local file system:


gbp import-dsc ../hello_2.10-1.dsc
