NAME

       debbugsconfig - copy basic debbugs configuration files from templates

SYNOPSIS

       debbugsconfig

DESCRIPTION

       debbugsconfig   will   copy  basic  debbugs  configuration  files  from
       templates if the files do not already exist, and will also  create  BTS
       user  documentation in HTML and text.  It should be run on installation
       and whenever /etc/debbugs/config or /etc/debbugs/text are changed.

FILES

       debbugsconfig creates the following  template  configuration  files  in
       $gConfigDir (/etc/debbugs by default):

              config General debbugs configuration file.

              text   Longer messages output by debbugs.

              Maintainers
                     Index   of  maintainers  for  each  package.   This  will
                     typically be automatically generated.

              Maintainers.override
                     Manual overrides for the maintainer index.

              pseudo-packages.description
                     Descriptions of any entries in  the  system’s  maintainer
                     index  that  do  not  correspond to “real” packages.  For
                     example, the Debian Project uses pseudo-packages for bugs
                     against  facilities  such  as  the  Debian  web site, the
                     mailing  list  archives,  and  the  bug  tracking  system
                     itself.

              sources
                     Index  of  source packages corresponding to each package.
                     This may be used when several packages are produced  from
                     a  single  source,  in which case the bug tracking system
                     will group them together with links in the web front-end.

       debbugsconfig  creates the following template state files in $gSpoolDir
       (/var/lib/debbugs/spool by default):

              nextnumber
                     The file which records the tracking number that  will  be
                     assigned to the next incoming bug report.

              index.archive.realtime
                     Real-time index of archived bugs.  Created empty.

              index.db.realtime
                     Real-time index of non-archived bugs.  Created empty.

       debbugsconfig    creates    the   following   documents   in   $gWebDir
       (/var/lib/debbugs/www by default):

              index.html
