lintian-brush - automatically fix lintian issues
lintian-brush [-h] [--no-update-changelog] [--version] [--list-fixers]
[--list-tags] [--diff] [TAGS [TAGS ...]]
lintian-brush automatically applies a set of fixes for common lintian issues,
adds the relevant changelog entries and commits the changes to the local
version control system.
The tool's philosophy is to fix any issues for which it knows a
correct fix, and to back off if it does not.
- Lintian tag for which to apply fixer.
- -h, --help
- show this help message and exit
- Whether to update the changelog.
- show program's version number and exit
- List available fixers.
- List lintian tags for which fixers are available.
- --fixers-dir DIRECTORY
- Override the fixers directory.
- After running all fixers, display the changes made as a single unified
- Use features that require packages that are not yet available in Debian
- Print the identity (name and e-mailaddress) that lintian-brush will use
when committing changes, and exit.
- Do not attempt to use the network to e.g. retrieve additional package
metadata from hosting sites, or to check whether a homepage is also
available over HTTPS.
- Run fixers but do not actually make changes to the repository. Useful in
particular in combination with --diff.
- Note that this currently will create a temporary clone of the repository,
which may be slow for large repositories.
- Print list of fixers that was run and print tracebacks for failed
- Make changes with lower certain than normal. This will potentially fix
more issues, but is more likely to get things wrong. If changes with lower
certainty were made, lintian-brush will let you know in its output.
- $ lintian-brush --list-tags
- List all lintian tags for which fixers are available.
- $ lintian-brush
- Run all fixers in the current Debian package.
