       gbp-pristine-tar - Manage pristine-tar commits in a git repository


       gbp pristine-tar [--version] [--help] [--verbose] [--color=[auto|on|off]] [--color-scheme=
                        COLOR_SCHEME] [--upstream-tag= tag-format] [--component= component]...
                        commit filename


       gbp pristine-tar  adds  the  pristine-tar  commit  for  a  given upstream tarball to a Git
       repository. This can be useful if a original tarball has been  already  imported  and  the
       pristine-tar  commits  should  be added at a later time or if you're tracking upstream git
       and want to create pristine-tar commits nevertheless.


              Print version of the program, i.e. version of the git-buildpackage suite

       -v, --verbose
              Verbose execution

       -h, --help
              Print help and exit

              Whether to use colored output.

              Colors to use in output (when color is enabled). The  format  for  COLOR_SCHEME  is
              '<debug>:<info>:<warning>:<error>'.  Numerical values and color names are accepted,
              empty fields imply the default color. For  example,  --git-color-scheme='cyan:34::'
              would  show  debug  messages  in  cyan, info messages in blue and other messages in
              default (i.e. warning and error messages in red).

              use this tag format when tagging upstream versions, default is upstream/%(version)s

              When creating the pristine-tar commits also look for  an  additional  tarball  with
              component name COMPONENT. E.g. in hello-debhelper_1.0.orig-foo.tar.gz the component
              name would be foo. The additional tarball is expected to be in the  same  directory
              than  the upstream tarball and to use the same compression type. This option can be
              given multiple times to add multiple additional tarballs.

              Using additional original tarballs is a feature of the 3.0 (quilt)  source  format.
              See   the  dpkg-source  manpage  for  details.  This  is  currently  considered  an
              experimental feature and might change incompatibly.


       Add pristine-tar commits for an upstream tarball:

             gbp pristine-tar ../upstream-tarball-0.1.tar.gz

       Same as above with an additional tarball ../upstream-tarball-foo-0.1.tar.gz:

             gbp pristine-tar --component-tarball=foo ../upstream-tarball-0.1.tar.gz


       Several gbp.conf files are parsed to set defaults for the  above  command-line  arguments.
       See the gbp.conf(5) manpage for details.
