DESCRIPTIONThis script generates and uploads the debian package for cvs modules managed by cvs-buildpackage.
cvs-autoreleasedeb will maintain a state file of all the packages you want to be automatically published, and every time you commit the debian/changelog file of your package, changing the debian version to a greater value, it will be published.
All the parameters to the script are configured in the conffile. There is no command-line switch. See cvs-autoreleasedeb.conf(5) for more information.
USINGThere are two ways of using this script:
1) Run as user cvs-autoreleasedeb in cron. This is very useful for software houses that want to have the ``nightily build'' version of the software published automatically. In this case, the config file will be ``/etc/cvs-autoreleasedeb.conf'' and it will use /var/lib/cvs-autoreleasedeb/ as scratch dir.
NOTE: edit /etc/default/cvs-autoreleasedeb to control this behavior NOTE 2: all output will be thrown in /var/log/cvs-autoreleasedeb/run.log
2) Run as yourself, it will automatizate the work you will have if you have your packages in CVS. In this case, the config file will be $HOME/.cvs-autoreleasedeb/conf and the scratch dir will be $HOME/.cvs-autoreleasedeb. cvs-autoreleasedeb will not create defaults, you must have the configuration file created before running cvs-autoreleasedeb. See cvs-autoreleasedeb.conf(5).
- Use a snapshot of the time of the commit in the changelog to checkout the source - Localize the messages. - Work with other than all lowercase in conffile. - Use a better format for conffile.
