getclose(8) Find PRs fixed in a particular release




getclose uses the three dates specified on the commandline to find and label PRs fixed in a particular release.
MIGRATION -- the date of the migration for the current release
FREEZE -- the date of the freeze for the current release
LASTFREEZE -- the date of the freeze for the previous release


FIXED:foo:1234:the synopsis
MAYBE:bar:1235:the synopsis

Those marked FIXED were closed before the migration into the current release. Those marked as MAYBE were closed after the migration, but before the freeze; thus, the fix may or may not have made it into the current release. These need to be researched to find out if the changes, if any, were included.

Any of the fields may be omitted, but at least one colon must appear; otherwise, the value is assumed to be the name of a local database.
