forward-patch [option...] PATCH [DISTRIBUTION]
$ forward-patch some-patch.patch Some-Dist # explicitly set dist name
$ forward-patch some-patch.patch # make f-p read dist name from debian/control
CONFIGURATIONIf the distribution name is not set from the command-line forward-patch will also look at the "Homepage" field in the "debian/control" file or the "Source" filed in "debian/copyright" and extracts the name from there.
forward-patch will use by default the "DEBFULLNAME" and "DEBEMAIL" environment variables to retrieve information about the ticket author. If not set, getpwuid and the "EMAIL" environment variable will be used.
- --tracker tracker-name
Instructs forward-patch to use the specified issue tracker.
Supported values for tracker-name are:
- Uses GitHub API to submit the patch as an issue. Requires proper "resources->repository" in META.
- Submits the patch to <http://rt.cpan.org>.
The default is determined by the "resources.bugs" and "resources.repository" values in META.
