       mergechanges - merge multiple changes files


       mergechanges [-f] file1 file2 [file...]


       mergechanges   merges   two   or   more  .changes  files,  merging  the
       Architecture, 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  Format.  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.
