dgit 9.1 source package in Ubuntu


dgit (9.1) unstable; urgency=medium

  New tools for a "git-push-to-upload" workflow [Ian Jackson & Sean Whitton]:
  * New script in a new binary package: git-debpush.
    The new binary package is small, but
    + git-debpush needs to be in src:dgit, because its test suite is the
      dgit test suite; however,
    + git-debpush is functionally and conceptually independent of dgit,
      so should not go into bin:dgit; in particular
    + git-debpush's dependencies are quite different to the other
      binary packages.
  * New dgit-infrastructure subcommand, tag2upload, to process tags made
    by git-debpush.
    Please see git-debpush(1) for a sketch of the workflow.

  * Allow the -p option to be used with various push modes.
  * Include dgit tag metadata in maintainer view tags.
    For consistency with, and use by, git-debpush.
  * Include quilt metadata in the archive/ (dgit view) tag.
  * rpush protocol: Version 6, which includes split brain information
    for maintainer view tags.  And, actually use newer version
    (was broken in 9.0, which would prefer to select 4 not 5).
  * Add some missing blank lines to tag messages.
  * Some other refactoring.

  Other documentation:
  * dgit(1): fix a reference in the description of --quilt=auto [Sean

  * Do not translate tag subject lines, because these are parsed by

  Test suite:
  * Test cases for new tools for "git-push-to-upload" workflow.
  * drs-git-ext: honour DGIT_DRS_MODE.
  * Provide a stunt sendmail and a stunt dgit.
  * Unset CDPATH in case caller has it set.
  * Some other refactoring.

  * Update d/copyright years to include 2019 [Sean Whitton].

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.

git-debpush: client script for git pushing to Debian-style archives

 git-debpush is a script to create and push a specially formatted
 signed git tag. The metadata in the tag indicates that the tagged
 commit should be pushed (or "uploaded") to a Debian-style archive.
 Tags generated by this script can be read by an intermediary service,
 which performs any conversion that's needed (such as producing and
 signing a .dsc and .changes), and then uploads the result to the
 Debian-style archive on your behalf.

git-debrebase: rebasing git workflow tool for Debian packaging

 git-debrebase is a tool for representing in git, and manipulating,
 Debian packages based on upstream source code.
