svn-autoreleasedeb - Automatic Release of debian packages from DESCRIPTION
This script generates and uploads the debian package for svn modules managed by svn-buildpackage. svn-autoreleasedeb will maintain a state file of all the packages you want to be automatically published, and every time you commit the debian/changelog file of your package, changing the debian version to a greater value, it will be published. All the parameters to the script are configured in the conffile. There is no command-line switch. See svn-autoreleasedeb.conf(5) for more information. USING
There are two ways of using this script: 1) Run as user svn-autoreleasedeb in cron. This is very useful for software houses that want to have the "nightily build" version of the software published automatically. In this case, the config file will be "/etc/svn-autoreleasedeb.conf" and it will use /var/lib/svn-autoreleasedeb/ as scratch dir. NOTE: edit /etc/default/svn-autoreleasedeb to control this behavior NOTE 2: all output will be thrown in /var/log/svn-autoreleasedeb/run.log 2) Run as yourself, it will automatizate the work you will have if you have your packages in SVN. In this case, the config file will be $HOME/.svn-autoreleasedeb/conf and the scratch dir will be $HOME/.svn-autoreleasedeb. svn-autoreleasedeb will not create defaults, you must have the configuration file created before running svn-autoreleasedeb. See svn-autoreleasedeb.conf(5). TODO
- Use a snapshot of the time of the commit in the changelog to checkout the source - Localize the messages. - Work with other than all lowercase in conffile. - Use a better format for conffile. _EXIT CODES _exit codes: 0 = Clean _exit 1 = Config file not found 2 = No packages in config file 3 = Couldn't open the state file 4 = Couldn't open the state file for writing 5 = Couldn't determine architecture SEE ALSO
