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)

listed below) are also accepted.
