       cvs-debrelease   -   upload  a  cvs-buildpackage/cvs-debuild  generated


       cvs-debrelease   [cvs-debrelease   options]   [--dopts    [dupload/dput


       cvs-debrelease  is  run  from  the  CVS  working  directory  after cvs-
       buildpackage 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-debrelease options from the dupload or dput options.  Also, the
       devscripts  configuration  files  will  be  read,  as  described in the
       debrelease(1) manpage.

       Note that unlike cvs-buildpackage, the only way to specify  the  source
       package  name  is  with the -P option; you cannot simply have it as the
       last command-line parameter.


       All current cvs-buildpackage options are  silently  accepted;  however,
       only the ones listed below have any effect.  For more details on all of
       them, see the cvs-buildpackage(1) manpage.  All debrelease options  (as
       listed below) are also accepted.

       --dupload, --dput
              This  specifies  which  uploader  program to use; the default is

       -adebian-architecture, -tGNU-system-type
              See dpkg-architecture(1) for a  description  of  these  options.
              They affect the search for the .changes file.  They are provided
              to mimic the behaviour of dpkg-buildpackage when determining the
              name of the .changes file.

              The name of the CVS module.

              The name of the package.

              The version number of the package.

              The CVS tag to use for exporting sources.

       -R<root directory>
              Root of the original sources archive.

       -W<work directory>
              The full path name for the cvs-buildpackage working directory.

              This option provides the CVS default module prefix.

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

       --help, --version
              Show help message and version information respectively.
