gbp-clone - Clone a repository from remote
gbp-clone [ --verbose ] [ --all ] [ --[no-]pristine-tar ] [ --debian-branch=branch_name ] [ --upstream-branch=branch_name ] remote_uri
gbp-clone clones a remote repository and sets up tracking branches for the debian, upstream and pristine-tar branches. This way you can easily update later using gbp-pull.
--all Track all branches, not only debian and upstream. --debian-branch=branch_name The branch in the Git repository the Debian package is being developed on, default is master. --upstream-branch=branch_name The branch in the Git repository the upstream sources are put onto. Default is upstream. --verbose -v verbose execution --pristine-tar Track pristine tar branch.
Four configuration files are parsed to set defaults for the above commandline arguments: /etc/git-buildpackage/gbp.conf system wide configuraton ~/.gbp.conf per user configuration .gbp.conf per branch configuration, can be published with the repository debian/gbp.conf per branch configuration, can be published with the repository .git/gbp.conf per repository configuration See /etc/git-buildpackage/gbp.conf for an example.
