NAME

gbp-clone - Clone a repository from remote

SYNOPSIS


gbp clone
[ --version] [--help] [--verbose] [--color=[auto|on|off]] [ --color-scheme= COLOR_SCHEME] [--all] [--[no-]pristine-tar] [--debian-branch= branch_name] [ --upstream-branch= branch_name] [--depth= depth] [--reference= repository] [--postclone= COMMAND] [--[no-]hooks] [--repo-user= [GIT|DEBIAN]] [--repo-email= [GIT|DEBIAN]] repository [directory]

DESCRIPTION

gbp clone clones a remote repository and sets up tracking branches for the debian, upstream and pristine-tar branches. This way you can easily update later using gbp pull.

OPTIONS

--version
Print version of the program, i.e. version of the git-buildpackage suite
-v, --verbose
Verbose execution
-h, --help
Print help and exit
--color=[auto|on|off]
Whether to use colored output.
--color-scheme=COLOR_SCHEME
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).
--all
Track all branches, not only debian and upstream.
--debian-branch=branch_name
The branch in the Git repository the Debian package is being developed on, default is master.
--upstream-branch=branch_name
The branch in the Git repository the upstream sources are put onto. Default is upstream.
--depth=depth
Git history depth, for creating shallow git clones.
--reference=repository
Local repository to use as alternate instead of re-copying data from remote repository.
--pristine-tar
Track pristine tar branch.
--[no-]hooks
Enable running hooks.
--postclone=COMMAND
Execute COMMAND after cloning the source from the remote.
 
Exported environment variables are: GBP_GIT_DIR (the repository the package is being built from).
 
Note that if you clone a repository that contains a hook configuration in debian/gbp.conf this hook will not be run automatically to prevent execution of untrusted code.
--repo-email=[GIT|DEBIAN]
When set to DEBIAN use the DEBEMAIL environment variable to set the user.email Git configuration otherwise use Git's defaults.
--repo-user=[GIT|DEBIAN]
When set to DEBIAN use the DEBUSER environment variable to set the user.name Git configuration otherwise use Git's defaults.
repository
The (possibly remote) repository to clone from. This is usually a Git URL but some shortcuts are supported (see below).
directory
The directory to clone to.

EXAMPLES

Clone a repository and setup a tracking branch for pristine-tar as well:
       gbp clone --pristine-tar git://honk.sigxcpu.org/git/git-buildpackage.git
Clone from the Git-Vcs URL of a package:
       gbp clone vcsgit:libvirt
Clone from a github repository:
       gbp clone github:agx/git-buildpackage

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.
