upstream and pristine-tar branches. This way you can easily update later using gbp pull.

Whether to use colored output.

Colors to use in output (when color is enabled). The format for COLOR_SCHEME is
'<debug>:<info>:<warning>:<error>'. Numerical values and color names are accepted,
empty fields imply the default color. For example, --git-color-scheme='cyan:34::'
would show debug messages in cyan, info messages in blue and other messages in
default (i.e. warning and error messages in red).

--all Track all branches, not only debian and upstream.

The branch in the Git repository the Debian package is being developed on, default
is master.

The branch in the Git repository the upstream sources are put onto. Default is

Git history depth, for creating shallow git clones.

Local repository to use as alternate instead of re-copying data from remote

Track pristine tar branch.


Several gbp.conf files are parsed to set defaults for the above command-line arguments.
See the gbp.conf(5)> manpage for details.
