       getclose - Find PRs fixed in a particular release




       getclose  uses the three dates specified on the commandline to find and
       label PRs fixed in a particular release.

       MIGRATION -- the date of the migration for the current release

       FREEZE -- the date of the freeze for the current release

       LASTFREEZE -- the date of the freeze for the previous release


       FIXED:foo:1234:the synopsis
       MAYBE:bar:1235:the synopsis

       Those marked FIXED were closed before the migration  into  the  current
       release.  Those  marked  as  MAYBE were closed after the migration, but
       before the freeze; thus, the fix may or may not have made it  into  the
       current  release.   These  need  to  be  researched  to find out if the
       changes, if any, were included.


       -h, --help
                 Prints a brief usage message for getclose.

       -V, --version
                 Prints the version number for getclose.

       -d DATABASE, --database=DATABASE
                 Specifies the database containing the PR to be edited; if  no
                 database is specified, the database named default is assumed.
                 This option overrides the database specified in  the  GNATSDB
                 environment variable.

   GNATS network options:
       -H HOSTNAME, --host=HOSTNAME
              Hostname of the GNATS server.

       -P PORT, --port=PORT
              The port that the GNATS server runs on.

       -v USERNAME, --username=USERNAME
              Username used to log into the GNATS server.

       -w PASSWORD, --passwd=PASSWORD
              Password used to log into the GNATS server.


       The GNATSDB environment variable is used to determine which database to
       use.  For a local database, it contains the name  of  the  database  to

       For  network  access  via gnatsd, it contains a colon-separated list of
       strings that describe the remote database, in the form


       Any of the fields may be omitted, but at least one colon  must  appear;
       otherwise, the value is assumed to be the name of a local database.

       If  GNATSDB  is  not  set, it is assumed that the database is local and
       that its name is default.
