GIT-DEBORIG(1) GIT-DEBORIG(1)

NAME

git-deborig - try to produce Debian orig.tar using git-archive(1)

SYNOPSIS

git deborig [-f] [REF]

DESCRIPTION

git-deborig tries to produce the orig.tar you need for your upload by calling git-archive(1) on an existing git tag or branch head. It was written with the dgit-maint-merge(7) workflow in mind, but can be used with other workflows.
git-deborig will try several common tag names. If this fails, or if more than one of those common tags are present, you can specify the tag or branch head to archive on the command line ( REF above).
git-deborig should be invoked from the root of the git repository, which should contain debian/changelog.

OPTIONS

-f
Overwrite any existing orig.tar in the parent directory.

SEE ALSO

git-archive(1), dgit-maint-merge(7)
