       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.
