       who-uploads - identify the uploaders of Debian source packages


       who-uploads [options] source_package ...


       who-uploads  uses the Package Tracking System (PTS) to identify the uploaders of the three
       most recent versions of the given source packages.  Note that the uploaders are identified
       using  their  gpg(1)  or  gpg2(1)  keys; installing a recent version of the debian-keyring
       package should provide most of the required keys.

       Note that because the PTS uses source packages, you must give the  source  package  names,
       not the binary package names.


       -M, --max-uploads=N
              Specify  the  maximum number of uploads to display for each package; the default is
              3.  Note that you may not see this many uploads if there are not this many recorded
              in the PTS.

       --keyring keyring
              Add keyring to the list of keyrings to be searched for the uploader's GPG key.

              By  default,  who-uploads  uses the two Debian keyrings /usr/share/keyrings/debian-
              keyring.gpg and /usr/share/keyrings/debian-maintainers.gpg (although  this  default
              can be changed in the configuration file, see below).  Specifying this option means
              that the default keyrings will not be examined.   The  --keyring  option  overrides
              this one.

       --date Show the date of the upload alongside the uploader's details

       --nodate, --no-date
              Do  not  show the date of the upload alongside the uploader's details.  This is the
              default behaviour.

       --no-conf, --noconf
              Do not read any configuration files.  This can only be used  as  the  first  option
              given on the command-line.

       --help, -h
              Display a help message and exit successfully.

              Display version and copyright information and exit successfully.


       The  two  configuration  files  /etc/devscripts.conf and ~/.devscripts are sourced in that
       order to set configuration variables.  Command  line  options  can  be  used  to  override
       configuration  file settings.  Environment variable settings are ignored for this purpose.
       The currently recognised variables are:

              Show the date of the upload alongside the uploader's details.  By default, this  is

              The maximum number of uploads to display for each package.  By default, this is 3.

              This  is a colon-separated list of the default keyrings to be used.  By default, it
              is   the   two   Debian   keyrings    /usr/share/keyrings/debian-keyring.gpg    and
