pristine-tar 1.42 source package in Ubuntu


pristine-tar (1.42) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Antonio Terceiro ]
  * pristine-tar: add support for recompressing tarballs as an alternative
    when we can't regenerate the original tarball. The recompressed tarball is
    not identical to the "real" original, but the contents will be the same.
    This makes it possible to work with most, it not all, of the tarballs that
    we currently would fail to reproduce.
  * Add `run` script to run programs from a source tree/git checkout.
  * pristine-tar: read command-line options from $PRISTINE_TAR
  * Recommend a version of xz-utils that has --robot (Closes: #705730)
  * pristine-*: improve manpages
  * pristine-*: implement --help
  * pristine-*: improve usage output
  * Add bug-report preamble for reportbug
  * zgz: fix typo in manpage
  * Use external test case repository as regression test suite
  * Bump Standards-Version to 4.1.1; no changes needed

  [ Edward Betts ]
  * correct spelling mistakes

Binary packages built by this source

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.
 An optional upstream signature may be attached to tarballs for verification
 by, for example, dpkg-source(1).
