       gbp import-srpm imports an RPM source package into a Git  repository,  notes  the  package
       version  in  the  commit  logs, and commits the change. All information, including package
       name, version and upstream source is automatically detected from the  source  package  but
       you  can  override  the location of the new repository by optionally specifying the target
       argument.  The  tool  supports  importing  both  archived  (src.rpm  files)  or   unpacked
       (directory) source RPMs. It also imports from http(s)-URLs.


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

       -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).

              Distribution vendor name.

              The  branch  in  the  Git  repository the upstream sources are put onto. Default is

              The branch in the Git repository the packaging  files  are  put  onto.  Default  is

              GPG sign all created tags.

              Use this keyid for gpg signing tags.

              Use    this    tag    format   when   tagging   released   versions,   default   is

              Do not create packaging tag after importing the packaging files.

              Use   this   tag   format   when   tagging   upstream    versions,    default    is

              Add  TAG-FORMAT  as  an  additional  parent  of the commit of the upstream tarball.
              Useful when upstream uses git and you want to link to its revision  history.   TAG-
              FORMAT can be a pattern similar to what --upstream-tag supports.

              Subdirectory where to put the RPM packaging files.

              Filter out files glob-matching pattern. Can be given multiple times.

              Generate pristine-tar delta file.

              Allow  one  to re-import a package with an already existing version.  This will not
              re-import the upstream sources - only packaging files will be re-imported.

              Use the author identity as  the  committer  when  importing  upstream  sources  and
              packaging files.

              Create missing upstream and/or packaging branch if missing.

              Import packaging files into an orphan branch that will not be based on the upstream
              branch. Useful if you want to maintain  (non-native)  package  using  the  'orphan-
              packaging' model. This option have no effect if --native is used.

              Treat  the  package as native package. No separate upstream branch or upstream tags
              will be created.

              When set to DEBIAN use the DEBUSER environment variable to set  the  Git
              configuration otherwise use Git's defaults. Only affects newly created repos.

              When  set to DEBIAN use the DEBEMAIL environment variable to set the Git
              configuration otherwise use Git's defaults. Only affects newly created repos.


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