cvs-autoreleasedeb - Automatic Release of debian packages from CVS


This script generates and uploads the debian package for cvs modules managed by

cvs-autoreleasedeb will maintain a state file of all the packages you want to be
automatically published, and every time you commit the debian/changelog file of your
package, changing the debian version to a greater value, it will be published.

All the parameters to the script are configured in the conffile. There is no command-line
switch. See cvs-autoreleasedeb.conf(5) for more information.


There are two ways of using this script:

1) Run as user cvs-autoreleasedeb in cron. This is very useful for software houses that
want to have the "nightily build" version of the software published automatically. In
this case, the config file will be "/etc/cvs-autoreleasedeb.conf" and it will use
/var/lib/cvs-autoreleasedeb/ as scratch dir.

NOTE: edit /etc/default/cvs-autoreleasedeb to control this behavior
NOTE 2: all output will be thrown in /var/log/cvs-autoreleasedeb/run.log

2) Run as yourself, it will automatizate the work you will have if you have your packages
in CVS. In this case, the config file will be $HOME/.cvs-autoreleasedeb/conf and the
scratch dir will be $HOME/.cvs-autoreleasedeb. cvs-autoreleasedeb will not create
defaults, you must have the configuration file created before running cvs-autoreleasedeb.
See cvs-autoreleasedeb.conf(5).


- Use a snapshot of the time of the commit in
the changelog to checkout the source
- Localize the messages.
- Work with other than all lowercase in conffile.
- Use a better format for conffile.


_exit codes:
0 = Clean _exit
1 = Config file not found
2 = No packages in config file
3 = Couldn't open the state file
4 = Couldn't open the state file for writing
5 = Couldn't determine architecture
