NAME

dpt-repack -- repackaging helper

SYNOPSIS

dpt repack --upstream-version version downloaded file"

DESCRIPTION

dpt repack helps creating repackaged tarballs, suitable for feeding dpkg-source(1).
Work is commenced in three stages:
dpt repack unpacks the provided upstream tarball.
debian/repack.local is sourced to remove unsuitable content.
dpt repack packs the sources again, under a suitable file name in the form "package_ver.orig.tar.gz" (suffix depending on initial compression).
dpt repack invokes debian/repack.local in an environment where rm and mv are replaced with functions that reflect the operations in the MANIFEST file, if present. Copyright 2009, Ryan Niebur ryan@debian.org
