pristine-tar 1.14 source package in Ubuntu


pristine-tar (1.14) unstable; urgency=low

  * Add support for gzip --rsyncable output produced by gzip 1.4.
    This differs from prior --rsyncable output, which was made by a Debian
    specific patch and used a different rsync window size, and reset
    huffman encodings less often.
  * Clarify man page.

pristine-tar: regenerate pristine tarballs

 pristine-tar can regenerate a pristine upstream tarball using only a small
 binary delta file and a revision control checkout of the upstream branch.
 The package also includes a pristine-gz command, which can regenerate a
 pristine .gz file, a pristine-bz2 for .bz2 files, and a pristine-xz for .xz
 The delta file is designed to be checked into revision control along-side
 the upstream branch, thus allowing Debian packages to be built entirely
 using sources in revision control, without the need to keep copies of
 upstream tarballs.
