NAME

       dch-repeat - repeats a changelog entry into an older release

SYNOPSIS

       dch-repeat --build-tree <PATH>
       dch-repeat --source-release <RELEASE>
       dch-repeat --target-release <RELEASE>
       dch-repeat --devel-release <RELEASE>

DESCRIPTION

       dch-repeat  is  used  to  repeat  a  changelog  into  an  older  release.  It expects that
       --build-tree is laid out with each Ubuntu  release  as  a  separate  directory  ("feisty",
       "edgy", etc).

       For    example,    if    gimp   had   a   security   update   prepared   for   Feisty   in
       $TREE/feisty/gimp-2.2.13, running dch-repeat in $TREE/edgy/gimp-2.2.13 would pull  in  the
       latest changelog from the Feisty build.
