dcut - Debian archive command file upload tool
dcut [-h] [-d] [-c FILE] [-m MAINTAINER] [-k KEYID] [-O FILENAME] [-P] [-s] [-U FILENAME] [-i FILENAME] [-v] [HOST] SUBCOMMAND ...
dcut [OPTIONS] [HOST] SUBCOMMAND [SUB-COMMAND OPTIONS]
dcut can create and/or upload command files understood by the debian archive kit ("dak") software. It provides an extensible interface so that third party authors can easily integrate more sub-commands. Hence, your running instance of dcut may understand more commands than these documented here. Refer to the respective documentations for these commands.
Similar to dput, a HOST can be specified as a target site for the command file. Likewise, the same default host selection criteria apply. It also parses the same configuration files described there.
It should be noted that this does not support the same interface as the old dput binary. Please be sure to double-check scripts that depend on old-style dput’s interface.
Sub-commands are actually implementing commands understood by be archive software. They can take individual arguments which must appear after specifying the actual desired sub-command.
Cancel an upload entirely. The upload is referred to as a changes file name existing remote in the incoming or deferred queues.
Takes one argument
Remove a lost or wrongly uploaded file from the incoming directory. The argument is interpreted as a path fragment by the archive software. Therefore, to delete a filename from a deferred queue, refer to it by using the full path
For example, to delete a broken upload in the DELAYED queue, use the command
dcut rm -f DELAYED/X-day/foobar.deb
Alternatively, the --searchdirs argument instructs the archive software to search for a file name in all directory. Hence, this command is equivalent to the command before:
dcut rm --searchdirs -f foobar.deb
Takes at least one argument
Manage Debian Maintainer (DM) upload permissions. Debian Developers can grant or revoke them package upload permissions using this command. Takes the Debian Maintainer and the action to perform as argument.
Note, dcut will not perform any validation for conflicting arguments within --allow and --deny below. This handling is left to the archive software, which is currently processing --allow before --deny as an implementation detail.
--allow PACKAGE LIST
--deny PACKAGE LIST
Reschedule an upload. This command can move a deferred upload to any other deferred queue.
Takes two arguments
This is a pseudo-command (that is, it is handled within dcut and not forwarded to the archive kit) which uploads a locally existing commands file as is.
However, no checks are performed for this file. Use with caution.
Takes one argument
