PROGRAM:

NAME


debcommit - commit changes to a package

SYNOPSIS


debcommit [options] [--all | files to commit]

DESCRIPTION


debcommit generates a commit message based on new text in debian/changelog, and commits
the change to a package's repository. It must be run in a working copy for the package.
Supported version control systems are: cvs, git, hg (mercurial), svk, svn (Subversion),
baz, bzr, tla (arch), darcs.

OPTIONS


-c, --changelog path
Specify an alternate location for the changelog. By default debian/changelog is used.

-r, --release
Commit a release of the package. The version number is determined from
debian/changelog, and is used to tag the package in the repository.

Note that svn/svk tagging conventions vary, so debcommit uses svnpath(1) to determine
where the tag should be placed in the repository.

-R, --release-use-changelog
When used in conjunction with --release, if there are uncommited changes to the
changelog then derive the commit message from those changes rather than using the
default message.

-m text, --message text
Specify a commit message to use. Useful if the program cannot determine a commit
message on its own based on debian/changelog, or if you want to override the default
message.

-n, --noact
Do not actually do anything, but do print the commands that would be run.

-d, --diff
Instead of committing, do print the diff of what would have been committed if this
option were not given. A typical usage scenario of this option is the generation of
patches against the current working copy (e.g. when you don't have commit access
right).

-C, --confirm
Display the generated commit message and ask for confirmation before committing it. It
is also possible to edit the message at this stage; in this case, the confirmation
prompt will be re-displayed after the editing has been performed.

-e, --edit
Edit the generated commit message in your favorite editor before committing it.

-a, --all
Commit all files. This is the default operation when using a VCS other than git.

-s, --strip-message, --no-strip-message
If this option is set and the commit message has been derived from the changelog, the
characters "* " will be stripped from the beginning of the message.

This option is set by default and ignored if more than one line of the message begins
with "[*+-] ".

--sign-commit, --no-sign-commit
If this option is set, then the commits that debcommit creates will be signed using
gnupg. Currently this is only supported by git, hg, and bzr.

--sign-tags, --no-sign-tags
If this option is set, then tags that debcommit creates will be signed using gnupg.
Currently this is only supported by git.

--changelog-info
If this option is set, the commit author and date will be determined from the
Maintainer and Date field of the first paragraph in debian/changelog. This is mainly
useful when using debchange(1) with the --no-mainttrailer option.

CONFIGURATION VARIABLES


The two configuration files /etc/devscripts.conf and ~/.devscripts are sourced by a shell
in that order to set configuration variables. Command line options can be used to
override configuration file settings. Environment variable settings are ignored for this
purpose. The currently recognised variables are:

DEBCOMMIT_STRIP_MESSAGE
If this is set to no, then it is the same as the --no-strip-message command line
parameter being used. The default is yes.

DEBCOMMIT_SIGN_TAGS
If this is set to yes, then it is the same as the --sign-tags command line parameter
being used. The default is no.

DEBCOMMIT_SIGN_COMMITS
If this is set to yes, then it is the same as the --sign-commit command line parameter
being used. The default is no.

DEBCOMMIT_RELEASE_USE_CHANGELOG
If this is set to yes, then it is the same as the --release-use-changelog command line
parameter being used. The default is no.

DEBSIGN_KEYID
This is the key id used for signing tags. If not set, a default will be chosen by the
revision control system.

VCS SPECIFIC FEATURES


tla / baz
If the commit message contains more than 72 characters, a summary will be created
containing as many full words from the message as will fit within 72 characters,
followed by an ellipsis.

Each of the features described below is applicable only if the commit message has been
automatically determined from the changelog.

git If only a single change is detected in the changelog, debcommit will unfold it to a
single line and behave as if --strip-message was used.

Otherwise, the first change will be unfolded and stripped to form a summary line and a
commit message formed using the summary line followed by a blank line and the changes
as extracted from the changelog. debcommit will then spawn an editor so that the
message may be fine-tuned before committing.

hg / darcs
The first change detected in the changelog will be unfolded to form a single line
summary. If multiple changes were detected then an editor will be spawned to allow the
message to be fine-tuned.

bzr If the changelog entry used for the commit message closes any bugs then --fixes
options to "bzr commit" will be generated to associate the revision and the bugs.
