Binary package “dput” in ubuntu oneiric
Debian package upload tool
dput allows you to put one or more Debian packages into the archive. This
package also includes a dcut utility which can be used to generate and / or
upload a commands file for the Debian FTP archive upload queue.
dput includes some tests to verify that the package is policy-compliant.
It offers the possibility to run lintian before the upload. It can also
run dinstall in dry-run-mode, when having used an appropriate upload method.
This is very useful to see if the upload will pass dinstall sanity checks
in the next run.
It is intended mainly for Debian maintainers only, although it can
also be useful for people maintaining local apt repositories.
