SYNOPSISdpt takeover -t top-directory [option...] package...
DESCRIPTIONdpt takeover helps taking over a package and adopting its control files for maintenance by the Debian Perl group.
dpt takeover first creates a local Git repository either from existing Git repository specified with the -g option, or by importing all package versions available on snapshot.debian.org via gbp-import-dscs(1).
Next dpt takeover adds suitable entries to debian/changelog, using information given by the -m or the -a options.
Next dpt takeover runs "dpt-packagecheck -a -A -C -c" to adjust the control fields.
Finally, the resulting Git repository is pushed to the Debian collaborative server, alioth.debian.org, unless the -n option is used.
