NAME

       dput.cf - Debian package upload tool configuration file

DESCRIPTION

       This manpage gives a brief overview of dput’s configuration file and the available options
       in it. dput is a tool to upload Debian packages to the archive.

FILES AND FORMAT

       dput reads, in order, these files:

        1. /etc/dput.cf

        2. ~/.dput.cf

        3. The file supplied via command line argument

       By default all configuration file locations are parsed, and overlaid in a additive manner.
       This way both, entire profiles and actual settings within a profile is inherited from any
       parent location defining a key within the current scope.

       dput.cf consists of different groups of configuration options, one for each host where you
       want to be able to upload packages. Hosts are defined using an identifier header with a
       short name for the host, enclosed in square brackets. Note that only if multiple such
       headers are encountered in the configuration, only the group following the last header is
       considered. This is done to avoid confusion when overriding a global configuration file
       with a user-specific one. There’s a special identifier, [DEFAULT], which holds default
       parameters for all the hosts. The defaults can be overridden by redefining them again in
       each host section.

   SUPPORTED KEYS
       These keys are supported in dput.cf files. For their meaning refer to dput(5).

       allow_dcut, allow_unsigned_uploads, allowed_distributions, default_host_main,
       default_keyid, fqdn, distributions, hash, incoming, method, login, passive_ftp,
       post_upload_command, pre_upload_command, run_lintian.

   UNSUPPORTED LEGACY KEYS
       These keys known and understood to the original dput implementation are not understood by
       dput-ng:

       method
           This command is mostly supported. However, there is no support for the rsync method.

       delayed
           This key is not supported. Use the --delayed switch from the command line, or set
           incoming to the actual delayed directory if you really rely on this key.

       run_dinstall
           Not supported. Please submit a post-upload hook if you’d like to run dinstall.

       check_version
           Not supported.

       progress_indicator
           Not supported yet.

       scp_compress
           SCP compression is enabled by default. This is, however not configurable currently.

       ssh_config_options
           Not supported. Please switch to the sftp method which supports your options from
           ssh_config(5) natively.

   UNSUPPORTED KEYS
       These keys are not supported in old-style configuration files. However, their values are
       inherited from their new-style defaults. See dput(5) for details:

       default_keyid, hooks, interface, meta, full_upload_log.
