dgit 0.18 source package in Ubuntu


dgit (0.18) unstable; urgency=low

  Major new feature:
  * Remote push (dgit rpush), a la debsign -r.  Closes:#721185.

  Improved behaviours:
  * dgit build, by default, uses the archive to find out what the correct
    -v<version> option is to pass to dpkg-genchanges.  Closes:#727200.
  * Abolish the sshdakls method and replace it with sshpsql: that is, ssh
    (to coccia, by default) and run sql commands on the ftpmaster
    database.  This is faster and has fewer bugs but is vulnerable to db
    schema changes.  Closes:#726955.  Closes:#720170.  Closes:#720176.
  * When generating git tags, quote the (uncanonicalised) changelog's
    Distribution field as the suite.
  * Command execution reports from --dry-run go to stderr.

  Other new features:
  * Support --gpg=... to provide a replacement command for gpg.
  * Support --ssh=... and --ssh:... to affect how we run ssh.

  * When using sbuild, pass the arguments to mergechanges in the right
    order so that we use the correct Description (the _source one,
    not the one from sbuild which didn't get e.g. -v<version>).
  * push actually takes an optional suite, like it says in the synopsis.
  * Fix dgit --damp-run sbuild to actually work.
  * Fix the "shellquote" internal subroutine.  The bugs in it ought not to
    have caused any real trouble in previous versions of dgit.

  Documentation and message fixes:
  * manpage: Clarify comments about orig tarballs.  Closes: #723605.
  * manpage: Remove comment in BUGS about lack of policy docs
    for Dgit field, which is specified now.  Closes:#720201.
  * manpage: Make discussion of --existing-package less scary.  The
    default archive access method no longer needs it.  Closes:#720171.
  * Mention "git merge", not "git-merge", in helpful message.

  Internal and debugging improvements:
  * Report chdir actions in debugging output.
  * Improvements to implementation of --dry-run and --damp-run.
  * Some code motion and cleanups.

  Note: changelog entries for the following versions, which were uploaded
  to Debian experimental, have been collapsed into this single entry:
    0.18~experimental2 0.18~experimental1
    0.17~experimental7 0.17~experimental6 0.17~experimental5
    0.17~experimental4 0.17~experimental3 0.17~experimental2
    0.16~experimental3 0.16~experimental2 0.16~experimental1
  We do describe here all the changes since 0.17.

dgit: git interoperability with the Debian archive

 dgit (with the associated infrastructure) makes it possible to
 treat the Debian archive as a git repository.
 dgit push constructs uploads from git commits
 dgit clone and dgit fetch construct git commits from uploads.
