MERGECHANGES(1)             General Commands Manual            MERGECHANGES(1)

NAME
       mergechanges - merge multiple changes files

SYNOPSIS
       mergechanges [-d] [-f] [-S] [-i] file1 file2 [file...]

DESCRIPTION
       mergechanges  merges  two or more .changes files, merging the Architec-
       ture, Description and Files (and Checksums-*, if present) fields of the
       two.   There  are checks made to ensure that the changes files are from
       the same source package and version and use the same changes file  For-
       mat.   The  first changes file is used as the basis and the information
       from the later ones is merged into it.

       The output is normally written to stdout.  If the -f option  is  given,
       the  output is written to package_version_multi.changes instead, in the
       same directory as the first changes file listed.

       If the -d option is given and the output is generated successfully, the
       input files will be deleted.

       If the -i or --indep option is given, source packages and architecture-
       independent (Architecture: all) packages are included  in  the  output,
       but architecture-dependent packages are not.

       If  the  -S  or  --source  option  is  given,  only source packages are
       included in the output.
