CVS-DEBC(1)                 General Commands Manual                CVS-DEBC(1)

       cvs-debrelease  - upload a cvs-buildpackage/cvs-debuild generated pack-

       cvs-debrelease   [cvs-debrelease   options]   [--dopts    [dupload/dput

       cvs-debrelease  is  run from the CVS working directory after cvs-build-
       package 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-debre-
       lease options from the dupload or dput options.  Also,  the  devscripts
       configuration  files  will  be  read, as described in the debrelease(1)

       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.

       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

       -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.

              The name of the CVS module.

              The name of the package.

              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.

              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.

       cvs-buildpackage was written by Manoj Srivastava, and the current  ver-
       sion of debrelease was written by Julian Gilbey <>.  They
       have been combined into this program by Julian Gilbey.
