cvs-debuild - build a Debian package using cvs-buildpackage and debuild SYNOPSIS
cvs-debuild [debuild options] [cvs-buildpackage options] [--lintian-opts lintian options] DESCRIPTION
cvs-debuild is a wrapper around cvs-buildpackage to run it with debuild as the package-building program. (This cannot simply be accom- plished using the -C option of cvs-buildpackage, as it does not know how to handle all of the special debuild options.) The program simply stashes the debuild and lintian options, and passes them to debuild when it is called by cvs-buildpackage. All of the standard debuild options may be used (as listed below), but note that the root command specified by any --rootcmd or -r command-line option will be passed as an option to cvs-buildpackage. The first non-debuild option detected will signal the start of the cvs-buildpackage options. The selection of the root command is slightly subtle: if there are any command-line options, these will be used. If not, then if cvs- buildpackage is set up to use a default root command, that will be used. Finally, if neither of these are the case, then debuild will use its procedures to determine an appropriate command, as described in its documentation. See the manpages for debuild(1) and cvs-buildpackage for more information about the behaviour of each. OPTIONS
The following are the debuild options recognised by cvs-debuild. All cvs-buildpackage and lintian options are simply passed to the appro- priate program. For explanations of the meanings of these variables, see debuild(1). --no-conf, --noconf --rootcmd=gain-root-command, -rgain-root-command --preserve-env --preserve-envvar=var, -evar --set-envvar=var=value, -evar=value --lintian, --no-lintian --ignore-dirname, --check-dirname These should not be needed, but it is provided nevertheless.

cvs-debrelease - upload a cvs-buildpackage/cvs-debuild generated package SYNOPSIS
cvs-debrelease [cvs-debrelease options] [--dopts [dupload/dput options]] DESCRIPTION
cvs-debrelease is run from the CVS working directory after cvs-buildpackage or cvs-debuild. It uses the cvs-buildpackage system to locate the .changes file generated in that run. It then uploads the package using debrelease(1), which in turn calls either dupload or dput. Note that the --dopts option must be specified to distinguish the cvs-debrelease options from the dupload or dput options. Also, the devscripts configuration files will be read, as described in the debrelease(1) manpage. Note that unlike cvs-buildpackage, the only way to specify the source package name is with the -P option; you cannot simply have it as the last command-line parameter. OPTIONS
All current cvs-buildpackage options are silently accepted; however, only the ones listed below have any effect. For more details on all of them, see the cvs-buildpackage(1) manpage. All debrelease options (as listed below) are also accepted. --dupload, --dput This specifies which uploader program to use; the default is dupload. -adebian-architecture, -tGNU-system-type See dpkg-architecture(1) for a description of these options. They affect the search for the .changes file. They are provided to mimic the behaviour of dpkg-buildpackage when determining the name of the .changes file. -Mmodule The name of the CVS module. -Ppackage The name of the package. -Vversion The version number of the package. -Ttag The CVS tag to use for exporting sources. -Rroot directory Root of the original sources archive. -Wwork directory The full path name for the cvs-buildpackage working directory. -xprefix This option provides the CVS default module prefix. --no-conf, --noconf Do not read any configuration files. This can only be used as the first option given on the command-line. --help, --version Show help message and version information respectively. SEE ALSO
