       who-permits-upload - look-up Debian Maintainer access control lists


       who-permits-upload [-h] [-s keyring] [-d dm_url] [-s search_type] query [query ...]


       who-permits-upload looks up the given Debian Maintainer (DM) upload permissions from and parses them in a human readable way. The tool can search by DM
       name, sponsor (the person who granted the permission) and by package.


       --dmfile=dm_url, -d dm_url
           Retrieve the DM permission file from the supplied URL. When this option is not
           present, the default value is used.

       --help, -h
           Display a usage summary and exit.

       --keyring=keyring, -s keyring
           Use the supplied GnuPG keyrings to look-up GPG fingerprints from the DM permission
           file. When not present, the default Debian Developer and Maintainer keyrings are used
           (/usr/share/keyrings/debian-keyring.gpg and
           /usr/share/keyrings/debian-maintainers.gpg, installed by the debian-keyring package).

           Separate keyrings with a colon ":".

       --search=search_type, -s search_type
           Modify the look-up behavior. This influences the interpretation of the query argument.
           Supported search types are:

               Search for a source package name. This is also the default when --search is
               omitted.  Since package names are unique, this will return given ACLs - if any -
               for a single package.

           uid Search for a Debian Maintainer. This should be (a fraction of) a name. It will
               return all ACLs assigned to matching maintainers.

               Search for a sponsor (i.e. a Debian Developer) who granted DM permissions. This
               will return all ACLs given by the supplied developer.

               Note that this is an expensive operation which may take some time.

           A case sensitive argument to be looked up in the ACL permission file. The exact
           interpretation of this argument is dependent by the --search argument.

           This argument can be repeated.
