NAME

gbp-pq-rpm - Manage patches and development branches in Git

SYNOPSIS


gbp pq-rpm
[ --version] [--help] [--verbose] [--color=[auto|on|off]] [ --color-scheme= COLOR_SCHEME] [--packaging-dir= DIRECTORY] [--spec-file= FILEPATH] [ --upstream-tag= TAG-FORMAT] [--abbrev= num] [--force] [--[no-]patch-numbers] drop | export | import | rebase | switch | apply

DESCRIPTION

gbp pq-rpm helps in managing patches and development branch(es) for packages that are maintained with gbp. It designed to be used for packages that are maintained using the "orphan-packaging" model. gbp pq-rpm has multiple subcommands, or actions, for working with the branches and patches.
gbp pq-rpm makes it easy to do source code development on a separate development branch (patch-queue branch in Debian git-buildpackage terms). For example, if the packaging files would be stored in master the associated development branch would be development/master.

ACTIONS

import
Create a development (patch-queue) branch by applying all patches from the packaging branch on top of the upstream version. The patches must apply without fuzz.
export
Export patches from the development branch into the packaging branch. It generates patches (one-per-commit) from the development branch and updates the spec file accordingly. It doesn't automatically commit the changes though - they need to verified and committed manually.
rebase
Switch to the development branch and rebase it against the current upstream version (indicated in the spec file of the associated packaging branch).
drop
Drop (delete) the development branch associated to the current branch. For example, you're on branch foo this would drop branch development/foo.
apply
Add a single patch to the development branch - similar to using git-am.
switch
Switch between the development branch and the associated packaging branch.

OPTIONS

--version
Print version of the program, i.e. version of the git-buildpackage suite
-v, --verbose
Verbose execution
-h, --help
Print help and exit
--color=[auto|on|off]
Whether to use colored output.
--color-scheme=COLOR_SCHEME
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).
--packaging-dir=DIRECTORY
Subdirectory that contains the RPM packaging files.
--spec-file=FILEPATH
Relative path to the spec file to use. Special value auto causes gbp to search and guess. Other values cause the --packaging-dir option to be ignored: the directory of the spec file is used, instead.
--upstream-tag=TAG-FORMAT
Use this tag format when looking for tags of upstream versions, default is upstream/%(version)s.
--abbrev=NUM
When exporting a patch queue abbreviate commit, instead of showing the full 40-byte hexadecimal object name in header lines, show only a partial prefix of length NUM. This is useful when existing patches were not generated by gbp pq.
--force
Import even if the development (patch-queue) branch already exists. Only valid for the import action.
--[no-]patch-numbers
Whether the patch files should start with a number or not.

META TAGS

When exporting patches from a patch-queue branch gbp pq-rpm will look at the commit message for special tags it recognizes. All tags need to start at the first column and require at least one whitespace after the colon.
Gbp-Rpm: Ignore
Ignores the commit, no patch is generated out of it.
Gbp-Rpm: If <expression>
Conditional patch. Put patch inside "%if <expression>" in the spec file.
Gbp-Rpm: IfArch<expression>
Conditional patch. Put patch inside "%ifarch <expression>" in the spec file.
For example, the following commit message:
      Fix around a problem in Fedora
which is not applicable elsewhere.
Gbp-Rpm: If 0%{?fedora}
Will result something like this in the spec file:
      # 0001-Fix-around-a-problem-in-Fedora.patch
      %if 0%{?fedora}
      %patch0 -p1
      %endif
