NAME

       dcut - Debian archive command file upload tool

SYNOPSIS

       dcut [-h] [-d] [-c FILE] [-m MAINTAINER] [-k KEYID] [-O FILENAME] [-P] [-s] [-U FILENAME]
       [-i FILENAME] [-v] [HOST] SUBCOMMAND ...

       dcut [OPTIONS] [HOST] SUBCOMMAND [SUB-COMMAND OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

       dcut can create and/or upload command files understood by the debian archive kit ("dak")
       software. It provides an extensible interface so that third party authors can easily
       integrate more sub-commands. Hence, your running instance of dcut may understand more
       commands than these documented here. Refer to the respective documentations for these
       commands.

       Similar to dput, a HOST can be specified as a target site for the command file. Likewise,
       the same default host selection criteria apply. It also parses the same configuration
       files described there.

       It should be noted that this does not support the same interface as the old dput binary.
       Please be sure to double-check scripts that depend on old-style dput’s interface.

OPTIONS

       -c, --config=FILE
           Configuration file to parse.

       -d, --debug
           Enable debug messages. Repeat twice to increase the verbosity level.

       -f, --force
           Bypass all sanity checks and upload the commands file as is. Use with caution.

       -m, --maintainer=MAINTAINER
           Use MAINTAINER for the uploader field and GnuPG key selection. Provide it as a full
           identity, that is in "J Uploader <yourid@example.com>" format. This has no effect when
           the upload command is used.

       -k, --keyid=KEYID
           Use KEYID as a key for signing. Default is to use DEBEMAIL and DEBFULLNAME, or
           whatever identity was provided with --maintainer. This has no effect when the upload
           command is used.

       -O, --output=FILENAME
           Write the resulting commands file to FILENAME instead of uploading it. This option
           should not be used with the upload command. The selected FILENAME wont be overwritten
           if it exists already. This is very helpful for testing that things work correctly.

       -P, --passive
           Force FTP passive mode when uploading the package through FTP. This option is
           deprecated - use profiles instead.

       -s, --simulate
           Simulate the upload only. This runs all pre-upload checks, initializes the upload
           handler but does not actually store any file.

       -i, --input=FILENAME
           Ignored silently for compatibility with old-style dput command lines.

       -v, --version
           Print version information and exit

       HOST
           Target host to upload a package. It has the same behavior and semantics as dput(1)s
           'HOST argument. It also uses the same profiles from it.

SUB-COMMANDS

       Sub-commands are actually implementing commands understood by be archive software. They
       can take individual arguments which must appear after specifying the actual desired
       sub-command.

   cancel
       Cancel an upload entirely. The upload is referred to as a changes file name existing
       remote in the incoming or deferred queues.

       OPTIONS
           Takes one argument

           -f, --filename=FILENAME
               The changes file name which refers to the upload to be cancelled.

   rm
       Remove a lost or wrongly uploaded file from the incoming directory. The argument is
       interpreted as a path fragment by the archive software. Therefore, to delete a filename
       from a deferred queue, refer to it by using the full path

       For example, to delete a broken upload in the DELAYED queue, use the command

           dcut rm -f DELAYED/X-day/foobar.deb

       Alternatively, the --searchdirs argument instructs the archive software to search for a
       file name in all directory. Hence, this command is equivalent to the command before:

           dcut rm --searchdirs -f foobar.deb

       OPTIONS
           Takes at least one argument

           -f, --filename=FILENAME
               The file name to be removed. This argument can be repeated, and also knows about
               the shell wildcards *, ?, and []. However, please keep your local shell
               replacements in mind when supplying shell meta characters. You may need to escape
               them or provide them within quotes.

           --searchdirs
               Search in all directories for the given file. Only supported for files in the
               DELAYED queue.

   dm
       Manage Debian Maintainer (DM) upload permissions. Debian Developers can grant or revoke
       them package upload permissions using this command. Takes the Debian Maintainer and the
       action to perform as argument.

       Note, dcut will not perform any validation for conflicting arguments within --allow and
       --deny below. This handling is left to the archive software, which is currently processing
       --allow before --deny as an implementation detail.

       OPTIONS
           --uid
               Any searchable, unique identity to identify an existing Debian Maintainer. This
               can be a (full) name an e-mail address or a GnuPG fingerprint of any existing
               Debian Maintainer. Note, the identity provided must be known in the DM keyring
               installed on your local system. The keyring is used to validate the supplied
               argument and makes sure the identity hint supplied matches exactly one DM. If the
               user you want to change ACLs on is not known to the local DM keyring, you can
               provide the full GPG user ID as argument, and pass --force, to cause dcut to
               bypass any argument checking/translation. Please note, this will generate a
               commands file which will be uploaded literally as is. Use with caution.

           --allow=PACKAGES
               Source package(s) where permissions to upload should be granted. Repeat the
               argument to apply permissions to more than one package at once.

           --deny=PACKAGES
               Source package(s) where permissions to upload should be denied. Repeat the
               argument to apply permissions to more than one package at once.

   reschedule
       Reschedule an upload. This command can move a deferred upload to any other deferred queue.

       OPTIONS
           Takes two arguments

           -f, --filename=FILENAME
               file name to be rescheduled

           -d, --days=DAYS
               Reschedule the upload to DAYS days. Takes a numeric argument from 0 to 15
               corresponding to the respective delayed queues. Note, 0-day is not the same as
               uploading to incoming straight.

   upload
       This is a pseudo-command (that is, it is handled within dcut and not forwarded to the
       archive kit) which uploads a locally existing commands file as is.

       However, no checks are performed for this file. Use with caution.

       OPTIONS
           Takes one argument

           -f, --filename=FILENAME
               A local file name which is uploaded as is to the archive software.

EXIT STATUS

       0
           Success

       1
           A runtime check returned an error

       2
           An internal error was detected, for example while loading configuration files

       3
           An upload error was detected, for example a permission or authentication problem while
           uploading files
