MERGECHANGES(1) General Commands Manual MERGECHANGES(1)
mergechanges - merge multiple changes files
mergechanges [-d] [-f] [-S] [-i] file1 file2 [file...]
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.
