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

apt-key - APT key management utility SYNOPSIS
apt-key [--keyring filename] [command] [arguments...] DESCRIPTION
apt-key is used to manage the list of keys used by apt to authenticate packages. Packages which have been authenticated using these keys will be considered trusted. COMMANDS
add filename Add a new key to the list of trusted keys. The key is read from filename, or standard input if filename is -. del keyid Remove a key from the list of trusted keys. export keyid Output the key keyid to standard output. exportall Output all trusted keys to standard output. list List trusted keys. finger List fingerprints of trusted keys. adv Pass advanced options to gpg. With adv --recv-key you can download the public key. update Update the local keyring with the archive keyring and remove from the local keyring the archive keys which are no longer valid. The archive keyring is shipped in the archive-keyring package of your distribution, e.g. the debian-archive-keyring package in Debian. net-update Work similar to the update command above, but get the archive keyring from an URI instead and validate it against a master key. This requires an installed wget(1) and an APT build configured to have a server to fetch from and a master keyring to validate. APT in Debian does not support this command and relies on update instead, but Ubuntu's APT does. OPTIONS
Note that options need to be defined before the commands described in the previous section. --keyring filename With this option it is possible to specify a specific keyring file the command should operate on. The default is that a command is executed on the trusted.gpg file as well as on all parts in the trusted.gpg.d directory, through trusted.gpg is the primary keyring which means that e.g. new keys are added to this one. FILES
/etc/apt/trusted.gpg Keyring of local trusted keys, new keys will be added here. Configuration Item: Dir::Etc::Trusted. /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/ File fragments for the trusted keys, additional keyrings can be stored here (by other packages or the administrator). Configuration Item Dir::Etc::TrustedParts. /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg Local trust database of archive keys. /usr/share/keyrings/debian-archive-keyring.gpg Keyring of Debian archive trusted keys. /usr/share/keyrings/debian-archive-removed-keys.gpg Keyring of Debian archive removed trusted keys.
