NAME

gbp-import-dsc - Import Debian packages into a Git repository

SYNOPSIS

gbp import-dsc [ --version ] [ --help ] [ --verbose ] [ --color=[auto|on|off] ] [ --color-scheme= COLOR_SCHEME ] [ --allow-same-versions ] [ --author-date-is-committer-date ] [ --author-is-committer ] [ --debian-branch=branch_name ] [ --debian-tag=tag-format ] [ --filter=pattern ] [ --keyid=gpg-keyid ] [ --[no-]create-missing-branches ] [ --[no-]pristine-tar ] [ --[no-]sign-tags ] [ --skip-debian-tag ] [ --upstream-branch= branch_name ] [ --upstream-tag=tag-format ] [ --repo-user=[GIT|DEBIAN] ] [ --repo-email=[GIT|DEBIAN] ] debian-source.dsc [ target ]
 
 
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).

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).
--upstream-branch=branch_name
The branch in the Git repository the upstream sources are put onto. Default is upstream.
--debian-branch=branch_name
The branch in the Git repository the debian sources are put onto. Default is master.
--[no-]sign-tags
GPG sign all created tags
--keyid=gpg-keyid
use this keyid for gpg signing tags
--debian-tag=tag-format
use this tag format when tagging Debian versions, default is debian/%(version)s
--upstream-tag=tag-format
use this tag format when tagging upstream versions, default is upstream/%(version)s
--skip-debian-tag
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=pattern
filter out files glob-matching pattern. Can be given multiple times.
--pristine-tar
generate pristine-tar delta file
--allow-unauthenticated
Whether to skip signature verification on downloads. Passed on verbatim to dget and apt-get respectively. Use with care.
--allow-same-version
Allow one to import a package with the same debian version.
--author-is-committer
When importing the Debian patch, use the author identity as committer identity.
--author-date-is-committer-date
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 missing upstream and debian branch if missing.
--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. Only affects newly created repos.
--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. 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
