debci - Debian Continuous Integration


debci is the main entry point for debci programs. Most of the commands are intended to be used by the debci system itself. However, there are a few commands that are useful for users, and they are listed below.
debci setup [OPTIONS]
Sets up a test bed for running local tests. For most of the backends, this should be usually ran as root.
debci localtest [OPTIONS] SOURCEPACKAGE [ BINARY ...]
Runs the tests from SOURCEPACKAGE, in exactly the same way they would be ran on
SOURCEPACKAGE can be a source package name, a local .dsc file, a local .changes file, a local unpacked source package directory, or anything else that autopkgtest(1) would take as a source package.
You can also pass any quantity of BINARY packages that will also be used in the test.


The following options apply to every debci command.
-c DIR, --config DIR
Uses DIR as the debci configuration directory.
-a ARCH, --arch ARCH
selects the architecture to run tests for (default: host architecture)
-n BACKEND, --backend BACKEND
selects the backends to run tests on (default: lxc)
-s SUITE, --suite SUITE
selects suite to run tests for (default: unstable)
-d DIR, --data-dir DIR
The directory in which debci will store its data, and where it will read from.
--amqp amqp://[user:password@]hostname[:port]
AMQP server to connect to (default: amqp://localhost)
-q, --quiet
Prevents debci from producing any output on stdout. Errors and warnings will still be sent to stderr.
