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

DESCRIPTION
       grep-excuses downloads the update_excuses.html file and  greps  it  for
       the specified maintainer name.  The libwww-perl package is required for
       this script.  If no name is given on the command line, first the  envi-
       ronment  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 <http://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.

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.
