dpt-rename-uploader - handle maintainer email changes
dpt rename-uploader full name old email new email
To be run from git/packages directory.
dpt rename-uploader walks over all package directories and changes any occurrences of author's old email address in debian/control and debian/copyright with their new email address. It is handy when an uploader became a Debian Developer and wants to use their firstname.lastname@example.org address.
A suitable entry is added to debian/changelog, but nothing is committed.
Repositories with uncommitted changes are not touched and a warning is issued.
