    dpkg-genchanges

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           dpkg-genchanges [option...]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           dpkg-genchanges  reads  information  from  an unpacked and built Debian
           source tree and from the files it has generated and generates a  Debian
           upload control file (.changes file).
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -b, -B, -A
                  Specifies  that  a  binary-only build is taking place (no source
                  files are to be included). There's no distinction between -b, -B
                  and  -A,  the produced .changes file will include whatever files
                  were created by the binary-*  target(s)  of  the  package  being
                  built.
    
           -S     Specifies  that  only  the  source should be uploaded (no binary
                  packages will be included).
    
           The -sx options control whether the original source archive is included
           in  the upload if any source is being generated (i.e.  -b or -B haven't
           been used).
    
           -si    By default,  or  if  specified,  the  original  source  will  be
                  included  only if the upstream version number (the version with-
                  out epoch and without Debian revision) differs from the upstream
                  version number of the previous changelog entry.
    
           -sa    Forces the inclusion of the original source.
    
           -sd    Forces  the  exclusion  of the original source and includes only
                  the diff.
    
           -vversion
                  Causes changelog information from all  versions  strictly  later
                  than version to be used.
    
           -Cchangesdescription
                  Read  the  description  of  the changes from the file changesde-
                  scription rather than using  the  information  from  the  source
                  tree's changelog file.
    
           -mmaintaineraddress
                  Use maintaineraddress as the name and email address of the main-
                  tainer for this package, rather than using the information  from
                  the source tree's control file.
    
           -emaintaineraddress
                  Use maintaineraddress as the name and email address of the main-
                  tainer for this upload, rather than using the  information  from
                  the source tree's changelog.
    
                  Override or add an output control file field.
    
           -Ufield
                  Remove an output control file field.
    
           -ccontrolfile
                  Specifies the main source control file to read information from.
                  The default is debian/control.
    
           -lchangelogfile
                  Specifies the change log file  to  read  information  from.  The
                  default is debian/changelog.
    
           -ffileslistfile
                  Read  the  list  of files to be uploaded here, rather than using
                  debian/files.
    
           -Fchangelogformat
                  Specifies the format of the changelog. By default the format  is
                  read  from  a  special  line near the bottom of the changelog or
                  failing that defaults to the debian standard format.
    
           -uuploadfilesdir
                  Look for the files to be uploaded in uploadfilesdir rather  than
                  ..   (dpkg-genchanges  needs  to find these files so that it can
                  include their sizes and checksums in the .changes file).
    
           -q     Usually dpkg-genchanges will  produce  informative  messages  on
                  standard  error,  for  example  about  how many of the package's
                  source files are being uploaded.  -q suppresses these  messages.
    
           -h, --help
                  Show the usage message and exit.
    
           --version
                  Show the version and exit.
    
    
    

    FILES

           debian/files
                  The  list  of generated files which are part of the upload being
                  prepared.  dpkg-genchanges reads the data here when producing  a
                  .changes file.
