pull-lp-source(1) download a source package from Launchpad


pull-lp-source [options] source package [release|version]


pull-lp-source downloads and extracts the specified version of <source package> from Launchpad, or the latest version of the specified release. To request a version from a particular pocket say release-pocket (with a magic -release for only the release pocket). If no version or release is specified, the latest version in the development release will be downloaded.


Listed below are the command line options for pull-lp-source:
