dch-repeat(1) repeats a changelog entry into an older release


dch-repeat --build-tree <PATH>

dch-repeat --pocket <POCKET>

dch-repeat is used to repeat a changelog into an older release. It expects that --build-tree is laid out with each Ubuntu release as a separate directory ("feisty", "edgy", etc).

For example, if gimp had a security update prepared for Feisty in $TREE/feisty/gimp-2.2.13, running dch-repeat in $TREE/edgy/gimp-2.2.13 would pull in the latest changelog from the Feisty build.


Listed below are the command line options for dch-repeat:
-h or --help
Display a help message and exit.
--build-tree PATH
Base of build trees. Default is /scratch/ubuntu/build.
-s or --source-release RELEASE
Which release to take changelog from.
--target-release RELEASE
Which release to build into.
--devel-release RELEASE
Which release is the development release.
--pocket POCKET
Which pocket to use.
