NAME

       dpt-packagecheck -- check package source for group policy consistency

SYNOPSIS

       dpt packagecheck -c check-option...

       dpt packagecheck -p package top-directory check-option...

DESCRIPTION

       dpt packagecheck performs various checks of package sources and tries to correct them in
       accordance with the policies of the Debian Perl Group.

   Package selection options
       dpt packagecheck can operate either on a single package, or on all packages maintained by
       the group.

       To run the checks on all group packages, use the -c option with working directory
       containing packages/ directory.

       To run the checks on individual package, use -p package top-directory, where top-directory
       is the directory containing the packages/ directory.

   Repository interaction
       If the -a option is given, changes are committed to the repository by calling "mr commit".

       If the -n option is given, no changes are committed.

       If neither option is given, dpt packagecheck asks for confirmation before calling "mr
       commit".

       Note that "mr commit" also pushes the changes to the remote repository.

   Check selection options
       -A  Run all the checks.

       -V  Add/fix "Vcs-Git" and "Vcs-Browser" fields in debian/control and remove
           "XS-Vcs-(Svn|Git|Browser)" fields.

       -H  Add "Homepage" field to debian/control and remove "Homepage" pseudo-field.

       -M  Check the "Maintainer" field of debian/control and make sure it is "Debian Perl Group
           <pkg-perl-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org>".

       -D  debian/control: add "${misc:Depends}" to "Depends".

       -d  debian/copyright: Substitute "Format-Specification" URL for DEP-5 revisions to
           anonscm.debian.org URL.

       -P  debian/control: substitute occurrences of dependencies like "perl (>= 5.6.0-{12,16})"
           with dependencies on "perl" without a version.

       -O  debian/control: replace "perl-modules" with "perl"

       -W  debian/watch: change CPAN URLs to <https://metacpan.org/release/Mod-Ule> and update to
           ignore developer releases

       -C  If -W is given, create debian/watch if it does not exist

       -R  debian/rules: rmdir /usr/\{lib,share\}/perl5 only if they exist; switch "dh --with foo
           \$@" to "dh \$@ --with foo"

       -Q  add debian/README.source pointing to quilt(1)'s README.source if the package uses
           quilt
