dpt-gen-itp -- generate ITP trivia

dpt-gen-itp(1) Debian Perl packaging Tools dpt-gen-itp(1)

NAME

dpt-gen-itp -- generate ITP trivia

SYNOPSIS

"dpt gen-itp > tmp && $EDITOR tmp && sendmail < tmp"

DESCRIPTION

dpt gen-itp can help in constructing the Intent To Package bug report which is to be filed when one starts working on a package. The script itself doesn't send the mail, but prepares the boiler-plate so that you don't have to worry about the proper format or other trivia.
dpt gen-itp gets the information from debian/control and debian/copyright, so filling up these files with real data will help. Copyright 2009, Ryan Niebur
