dh-make-ruby(1) build Debian source package from Ruby library




dh-make-ruby will create a basic Debian source package from a tarball named TARBALL generated with gem2tgz, or from a DIRECTORY containing Ruby code and metadata in a .gemspec file. If no argument is specified, dh-make-ruby will build a Debian source package from the current directory.


-p PACKAGE, --package PACKAGE
Uses PACKAGE as package name. By default, new packages will be named as ruby-$gem, where $gem is the upstream name. If the package is mainly used as a library, then it should use the default. On the other hand, if the packages is mainly used as an application, then you should drop the ruby- prefix by using this option an explicit package u.
-w, --overwrite
Overwrites packaging files that already exists but would be created by dh-make-ruby if they didn't. Exception: debian/copyright is never touched.
--ruby-versions VERSIONS
Ruby versions to build the package for. This is used to generate the X-Ruby-Versions: field in the source package, that can later be used to tune this value. By default, gem2deb generates a package that works on all known Ruby versions, but it might be necessary to only build the package for Ruby 1.9.1, for example (using --ruby-versions ``ruby1.9.1'').
-h, --help
Displays the help
-v, --version
Displays version information and exits.
Prevents dh-make-ruby to check wnpp reports to get the number of a possible ITP (intend to package) bug report. By default, dh-make-ruby does check these reports, which requires an Internet access.
