NAME
dscverify - verify the validity of a Debian package SYNOPSIS
dscverify [--keyring keyring] ... changes_or_dsc_filename ... DESCRIPTION
dscverify checks that the GPG signatures on the given .changes or .dsc files are good signatures made by keys in the current Debian keyrings, found in the debian-keyring and debian-maintainers packages. (Additional keyrings can be specified using the --keyring option any number of times.) It then checks that the other files listed in the .changes or .dsc files have the correct sizes and checksums (MD5 plus SHA1 and SHA256 if the latter are present). The exit status is 0 if there are no problems and non-zero otherwise. OPTIONS
--keyring keyring Add keyring to the list of keyrings to be used. --no-default-keyrings Do not use the default set of keyrings. --no-conf, --noconf Do not read any configuration files. This can only be used as the first option given on the command-line. --nosigcheck, --no-sig-check, -u Skip the signature verification step. That is, only verify the sizes and checksums of the files listed in the .changes or .dsc files. --verbose Do not suppress GPG output. --help, -h Display a help message and exit successfully. --version Display version and copyright information and exit successfully. CONFIGURATION VARIABLES
The two configuration files /etc/devscripts.conf and ~/.devscripts are sourced by a shell in that order to set configuration variables. Environment variable settings are ignored for this purpose. If the first command line option given is --noconf or --no-conf, then these files will not be read. The currently recognised variable is: DSCVERIFY_KEYRINGS This is a colon-separated list of extra keyrings to use in addition to any specified on the command line. KEYRING
Please note that the keyring provided by the debian-keyring package can be slightly out of date. The latest version can be obtained with rsync, as documented in the README that comes with debian-keyring. If you sync the keyring to a non-standard location (see below), you can use the possibilities to specify extra keyrings, by either using the above mentioned configuration option or the --keyring option. Below is an example for an alias: alias dscverify='dscverify --keyring ~/.gnupg/pubring.gpg' STANDARD KEYRING LOCATIONS
By default dscverify searches for the debian-keyring in the following locations: - /org/keyring.debian.org/keyrings/debian-keyring.gpg - /usr/share/keyrings/debian-keyring.gpg - /usr/share/keyrings/debian-maintainers.gpg SEE ALSO
gpg(1) and devscripts.conf(5). AUTHOR

WHO-UPLOADS(1)						      General Commands Manual						    WHO-UPLOADS(1)

NAME
who-uploads - identify the uploaders of Debian source packages SYNOPSIS
who-uploads [options] source_package ... DESCRIPTION
who-uploads uses the Package Tracking System (PTS) to identify the uploaders of the three most recent versions of the given source pack- ages. Note that the uploaders are identified using their gpg(1) keys; installing a recent version of the debian-keyring package should provide most of the required keys. Note that because the PTS uses source packages, you must give the source package names, not the binary package names. OPTIONS
-M, --max-uploads=N Specify the maximum number of uploads to display for each package; the default is 3. Note that you may not see this many uploads if there are not this many recorded in the PTS. --keyring keyring Add keyring to the list of keyrings to be searched for the uploader's GPG key. --no-default-keyrings By default, who-uploads uses the two Debian keyrings /usr/share/keyrings/debian-keyring.gpg and /usr/share/keyrings/debian-maintain- ers.gpg (although this default can be changed in the configuration file, see below). Specifying this option means that the default keyrings will not be examined. The --keyring option overrides this one. --date Show the date of the upload alongside the uploader's details --nodate, --no-date Do not show the date of the upload alongside the uploader's details. This is the default behaviour. --no-conf, --noconf Do not read any configuration files. This can only be used as the first option given on the command-line. --help, -h Display a help message and exit successfully. --version Display version and copyright information and exit successfully. CONFIGURATION VARIABLES
The two configuration files /etc/devscripts.conf and ~/.devscripts are sourced in that order to set configuration variables. Command line options can be used to override configuration file settings. Environment variable settings are ignored for this purpose. The currently recognised variables are: WHOUPLOADS_DATE Show the date of the upload alongside the uploader's details. By default, this is "no". WHOUPLOADS_MAXUPLOADS The maximum number of uploads to display for each package. By default, this is 3. WHOUPLOADS_KEYRINGS This is a colon-separated list of the default keyrings to be used. By default, it is the two Debian keyrings /usr/share/keyrings/debian-keyring.gpg and /usr/share/keyrings/debian-maintainers.gpg. AUTHOR
