revu-orig - Debian packages reviewing tool
revu-orig [ --help | -h ] [ upstream tarball [ dsc file ] ]
Debian packages reviewing tool. revu-orig is a reviewing tool from the revu-tools package, aimed to helping reviewers of Debian packages in their task. revu-orig achieves a series of tests comparing the upstream tarball with the orig.tar.gz file. It returns a series of reports in the current folder that can be used by revu-report to generate a full report. revu-orig is currently able to use debian/watch files to detect new upstream versions of the program and download the current upstream tarball to achieve the tests. It also detects Debian-native packages. Among the informations revu-orig gives are: · Whether the package is a Debian-native ; · Whether the package contains a usable debian/watch file ; · Whether new versions of the program are available, using the debian/watch file with uscan ; · Whether the md5 sums of the upstream tarball and the orig.tar.gz are identical, and whether this is normal or not ; · Whether there is a diff between the extracted upstream tarball and orig.tar.gz.
--help | -h Show informations about the program and the usage. upstream tarball Indicate what file to use as upstream tarball. This is optional since revu-orig can download the upstream tarball using debian/watch and/or detect its presence automatically in the folder. dsc file Indicate what dsc file to use. This is optional since revu-orig can detect the dsc file automatically in the folder. Note that this argument can only be given if the tarball was given as first one.
