pristine-tar 1.17 source package in Ubuntu


pristine-tar (1.17) unstable; urgency=low

  * pristine-tar: Fail when the delta is excessively large, probably
    due to the tarball being compressed with something that tar x can 
    auto-extract, but that pristine-tar does not support.

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.
