dgit 4.2 source package in Ubuntu


dgit (4.2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Upload dgit 4.x series to unstable.

  New features [Sean Whitton]:
  * New 'push-source' subcommand for source-only uploads.  Closes:#848931
  * When dgit builds a source package, such as in the 'build-source'
    subcommand, it now bypasses dpkg-buildpackage and invokes dpkg-source
    directly.  This avoids a _source.buildinfo file in the .changes, which
    doesn't make sense when using dgit.  See

  Documentation improvements:
  * dgit(1): Add a bit more rationale (polemic, even).  Closes:#874221.
  * Recommend mk-build-deps rather than apt-get build-dep.
    Suggestion from Nikolaus Rath.  Closes:#863361.
  * dgit-maint-merge(7): many updates.  [Sean Whitton]
  * dgit-*(7): Mention first upload trick.  [Andrew Shadura,
    Sean Whitton]  Closes:#856402.

  Minor fixes:
  * When source discrepancy involves file mode changes, report them
    specially.  Closes:#886442.
  * In split brain mode, with unexpected diffs, print dgit view
    commitid in suggested diff rune.  (HEAD is wrong.)  Closes:#886443.
  * Fix message about missing quilt cache entry to refer to
    HEAD rather than tree, since dgit needs a commit.  Closes:#884646.
  * Fix grammar error in 4.1 changelog entry. [Sean Whitton]
  * Remove some whitespace "errors". [Sean Whitton]

  * Remove dependency alternative on realpath (package last existed in
    Debian wheezy).  Closes:#877552.

  Test suite:
  * dpkgsourceignores-docs: Correct restriction (so autopkgtest
    won't try to run it).
  * Additional workarounds for gnupg races (#868550) including
    retrying each individual test once, and more sophisticated
    wrapper for gpg (with locking and, sometimes saves stdin).
  * oldnewtagalt: Fix regression when running outside git tree,
    introduced in 4.1.

Binary packages built by this source

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.

dgit-infrastructure: dgit server backend infrastructure

 This package contains tools which are useful for setting up a dgit
 git repository server. You probably want dgit, the client package,
 instead of dgit-infrastructure.
