NAME

       dpt-forward - Forward a bug or a patch upstream

SYNOPSIS

        dpt forward [option...] path/to/some.patch [bug-number]
        dpt forward [option...] bug-number [path/to/some.patch]

OPTIONS

       --dist name
       -d name
           Distribution name. Determined from META, the "Name" field in debian/upstream/metadata,
           the "Homepage" field in debian/control file or the "Source" field in debian/copyright,
           in that order.

       --force
           Normally <dpt-forward> checks if the bug/patch is already forwarded upstream and
           aborts if so. With this option, the check is still done, but execution is not aborted
           and only a warning is issued.

       --meta file
           Specifies the location of the META file. Defaults to META.json or META.yml in the
           current directory, whichever is found first.

       --mode bug|patch
       -m bug|patch
           Mode of operation. Should rarely be needed.

           Determines the meaning of the arguments. bug means that the first argument is a bug
           number, and the second argument is a patch file name. patch means the opposite.

           Determined from the first non-option argument and whether it looks like a bug number
           or a patch file name.

       --offline-test
           All operations that require network are replaced with stubs, allowing for off-line
           testing.

       --ticket number
           If present, the information is submitted to the ticket as an additional comment.

           If missing, a new ticket is created.

       --tracker name
       -t name
           Tracker used by the distribution. dpt forward currently supports cpan
           (<http://rt.cpan.org>) and github. The default is determined from the
           "resources->bugtracker->web" field of META. If that field is not present, cpan is
           used.

       --tracker-url url
       -u url
           Tracker URL to submit the information to. Taken from the "resources->bugtracker->web"
           field of META or the "Bug-Database" field in debian/upstream/metadata. Defaults to
           "https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=dist-name" for cpan and is
           mandatory for github.

       --use-mail
           Send bug and patch submissions by e-mail instead of creating an issue or pull request
           via API. As the resulting ticket URL is not known to dpt forward, it cannot mark patch
           and bug as forwarded.

       --mailto address
           This option sets the e-mail address to forward to. The default is determined from the
           "resources->bugtracker->mailto" field of META or CPAN RT bug address if that field is
           not present.

       --fallback
           Enable fallback to forwarding patches as bug reports when pull requests fail for any
           reason. Defaults to false.

FILES

       ~/.pause
           Your pause credentials. At least user and password are needed in order to create
           tickets on rt.cpan.org via REST API. dpt forward will fall back to email (slower,
           won't mark patches and bugs forwarded) otherwise.

ENVIRONMENT

       DPT_GITHUB_OAUTH
           In order to perform github operations, DPT_GITHUB_OAUTH must be set.  See
           dpt-github-oauth(1) on how to obtain an access token for your github account, and
           dpt-config(5) on storing settings permanently in dpt.conf.
