NAME


arriero - simplifies management of several Debian packages

SYNOPSIS


arriero [--config FILE] [--verbose] [--quiet] command [options] [package names]

DESCRIPTION


Arriero is a tool that allows simplifying the management of Debian packages, particularly
useful when having to make new upstream releases, builds and uploads of similar packages.
It relies heavily in the use of git-buildpackage and general git practices, so it's only
useful for packages currently maintained through git.

GENERAL OPTIONS


-c,--config FILE
Specifies the location of the config file to use. The config file holds all
information related to packages. It's recommended to have different config files
in order to work with different groups of packages.

If not specified, the default config file ~/.config/arriero.conf is read.

-v, --verbose
Show info and debug messages. By default, only warnings and errors are shown.

-q, --quiet
Only show critical errors. If both quiet and verbose are specified, verbose is
honored.

-a, --all
Work with all packages. When this option is not specified, package names need to
be specified following the command option, separated by spaces.

COMMANDS


The main action that arriero will perform is determined by the command it receives. Each
command may have its own specific options, that modify its behavior.

build
Build each package in a pbuilder. This will call git-pbuilder which will read local
configurations from /etc/pbuilderrc and ~/.pbuilderrc.

-D, --distribution , --dist dist-name
Build the package for the specified distribution

-A, --architecture , --arch arch-name
Build the package for the specified architecture

-U, --local-upload
After a successful build is finished, the package is uploaded, using the upload-
command, using local as the host to upload to.

clone
Obtain the repository for each package. This command can either receive a list of package
names or a git URL to clone from. When specifying a URL, it will create a new entry in the
configuration file; if specifying a package name, it needs to already be present in the
configuration.

--basedir
The base directory in which to create the clone. After making the clone
successfully, the package will be located in basedir/package_name

--upstream-branch
The branch where the upstream code is located.

--debian-branch
The branch where the Debian code is located.

When performing a clone from a URL, if the branches are not manually specified,
arriero will try to guess their names, and store the guessed names in the
configuration file.

exec
Execute one or more scripts for each package. The scripts invoked will receive the
properties of the packages as environment variables, and will be executed inside the
package directory.

-x, --script script_name
The name of the script to be executed. This option can be present multiple times.
In that case, each script will be called, in the same order as presented in the
command line. If one of the scripts fails for a certain package, the following ones
will not be executed for that package

fetch-upstream
Fetch the current upstream tarball for each package.

list
List packages matching some criteria, with a specific format. This command allows
specifying the desired format with which each package is going to be displayed.

-f, --fields field_list
Fields to include while generating the list. The list of fields should be comma
separated. The fields available are:

basedir

branch

build_file

changes_file

debian_branch

depends

distribution

export_dir

is_dfsg

is_native

is_merged

name

path

pristine_tar_branch

tarball_dir

upstream_branch

upstream_version

vcs_git

version

-F, --format field_format
The format to use may include fields by name or order, as specified in the --fields
parameter.

-e, --include-empty-results
By default, results where nothing would be listed are skipped, if this option is
specified, they will be shown even when there is no string to show.

overlay
Combine upstream and debian branches into either the original debian branch, or a new
branch. This command is intended to be used when the debian branch doesn't include the
upstream code and the user needs to have them together in order to work on the package
(for example, to create a quilt package). Important: this command does not handle
cleaning up the branch after the work is done. This has to be done manually by the user.

-b, --branch branch-name
The name of the new branch to create with the overlay. If specified and the branch
already exists, the command will fail without modifying anything. If not
specified, the debian branch for the package will be used.

pull
Obtain any new changes from the packages' repositories.

push
Push local changes to the packages' repositories.

release
Change the distribution in the changelog, committing the change to the local git. This
command only has effect if the distribution in the changelog is either UNRELEASED or
different than the one passed here.

-D,--distribution distribution-name
The distribution to make the release to.

-P,--pre-release
If this option is received, the release will contain a ~ after the debian version.
The number after the ~ will get incremented each time the release command is
called. This allows for maitainers to keep track of internal tests until it's time
to actually release the package.

If this option is not passed, but the version in the changelog was already a pre-
release (i.e. it contained a ~), the it's modified to be a final release (without
~)

status
Show the status of each package. This command checks both the repository state (by using
git to query any local/remote changes) and the upstream state (by using uscan)

update
Get the new upstream release for each package. This command not only downloads the new
upstream tarball, but also updates the debian/changelog with a new entry for the new
release, with distribution set to UNRELEASED.

upload
Upload each package. This command uses the upload-command set in the config file to
upload each built package (packages that have not been built are ignored).
