NAME


dpkg-genchanges - generate Debian .changes files

SYNOPSIS


dpkg-genchanges [option...]

DESCRIPTION


dpkg-genchanges reads information from an unpacked and built Debian source tree and from
the files it has generated and generates a Debian upload control file (.changes file).

OPTIONS


-g Specifies that only source and architecture independent packages should be
uploaded, thus no architecture specific packages will be included (since dpkg
1.17.11).

-G Specifies that only source and architecture specific packages should be uploaded,
thus no architecture independent packages will be included (since dpkg 1.17.11).

-b, -B, -A
Specifies that a binary-only build is taking place, thus no source files are to be
included. There's no distinction between -b, -B and -A, the produced .changes file
will include whatever files were created by the binary-* target(s) of the package
being built.

-S Specifies that only the source should be uploaded, thus no binary packages will be
included.

The -sx options control whether the original source archive is included in the upload if
any source is being generated (i.e. -b or -B haven't been used).

-si By default, or if specified, the original source will be included only if the
upstream version number (the version without epoch and without Debian revision)
differs from the upstream version number of the previous changelog entry.

-sa Forces the inclusion of the original source.

-sd Forces the exclusion of the original source and includes only the diff.

-vversion
Causes changelog information from all versions strictly later than version to be
used.

-Cchanges-description
Read the description of the changes from the file changes-description rather than
using the information from the source tree's changelog file.

-mmaintainer-address
Use maintainer-address as the name and email address of the maintainer for this
package, rather than using the information from the source tree's control file.

-emaintainer-address
Use maintainer-address as the name and email address of the maintainer for this
upload, rather than using the information from the source tree's changelog.

-Vname=value
Set an output substitution variable. See deb-substvars(5) for a discussion of
output substitution.

-Tsubstvars-file
Read substitution variables in substvars-file; the default is debian/substvars. No
variable substitution is done on any of the fields that are output, however the
special variable Format will override the field of the same name. This option can
be used multiple times to read substitution variables from multiple files (since
dpkg 1.15.6).

-Dfield=value
Override or add an output control file field.

-Ufield
Remove an output control file field.

-ccontrolfile
Specifies the main source control file to read information from. The default is
debian/control.

-lchangelog-file
Specifies the changelog file to read information from. The default is
debian/changelog.

-ffiles-list-file
Read the list of files to be uploaded here, rather than using debian/files.

-Fchangelog-format
Specifies the format of the changelog. See dpkg-parsechangelog(1) for information
about alternative formats.

-uupload-files-dir
Look for the files to be uploaded in upload-files-dir rather than ..
(dpkg-genchanges needs to find these files so that it can include their sizes and
checksums in the .changes file).

-q Usually dpkg-genchanges will produce informative messages on standard error, for
example about how many of the package's source files are being uploaded. -q
suppresses these messages.

-?, --help
Show the usage message and exit.

--version
Show the version and exit.
