dbp-get - Check out a Debian package from a Darcs repository
dbp-get [ package ... ]
The dbp-get command is used to check out a copy of the Debian source
for a package from Darcs. Additionally, it can automatically download
a copy from any of several mirrors if the Darcs repository doesn't
already exist locally.
The one option specifies the name of the package to get.
Configuration happens in ~/.darcs-buildpackage like with all the other
commands. The two new options are debianmirrors and upstreammirrors.
They are whitespace-separated lists of mirrors to check if the given
package isn't in the local area. Here's an example:
repobase = /home/jgoerzen/debdarcs
upstreamrepo = %(repobase)s/%(package)s.upstream
debianrepo = %(repobase)s/%(package)s
debianmirrors = http://darcs.complete.org/debian/%(package)s
upstreammirrors = http://darcs.complete.org/debian/%(package)s.upstream
Detailed usage information, including a background and a description of
how the tools fit together, can be found in the darcs-buildpackage
Manual. On Debian systems, you may find this at /usr/share/doc/darcs-
darcs-buildpackage applications have references in that manual and the
following manpages: dbp-importdsc(1), dbp-importorig(1), dbp-
