grep-excuses

SYNOPSIS
       grep-excuses [options] [maintainer|package]

DESCRIPTION
       grep-excuses downloads the autoremovals and  update_excuses.html  files
       and  greps them for the specified maintainer or package name.  The wget
       package is required for this script.  If no name is given on  the  com-
       mand  line, first the environment variable DEBFULLNAME is used if it is
       defined, and failing that, the configuration variable  described  below
       is used.

OPTIONS
       --no-conf, --noconf
              Do  not  read any configuration files.  This can only be used as
              the first option given on the command-line.

       --wipnity, -w
              Get information from <https://release.debian.org/migration/>.  A
              package name must be given when using this option.

       --help Show a brief usage message.

       --version
              Show version and copyright information.

       --no-autoremovals
              Investigate  and  show  only  testing  propagation  excuses, not
              autoremovals.

       --debug
              Print debugging output to stderr (including url(s) fetched).

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.   Environ-
       ment  variable  settings  are  ignored for this purpose.  The currently
       recognised variable is:

       GREP_EXCUSES_MAINTAINER
              The default maintainer, email or package to grep for if none  is
              specified on the command line.
