       gbp import-dsc imports a Debian source package into a Git repository,  notes  the  package
       version  in  the  commit  logs, and commits the change. All information, including package
       name, version, Debian  diffs, and upstream  source  is  automatically  detected  from  the
       source package.


              The  branch  in  the  Git  repository the upstream sources are put onto. Default is

              The branch in the Git repository the  debian  sources  are  put  onto.  Default  is


       -v     verbose execution

              GPG sign all created tags

              use this keyid for gpg signing tags

              use this tag format when tagging Debian versions, default is debian/%(version)s

              use this tag format when tagging upstream versions, default is upstream/%(version)s

              Don't create Debian tag after importing the Debian patch. This can be useful if you
              already created a package but want to further work on it after  importing  it  into

              filter out files glob-matching pattern. Can be given multiple times.

              generate pristine-tar delta file

              Download the source package instead of looking for it in the local file system. The
              argument can either be a source-package name or an URL. The former uses apt-get  to
              download the source while the later uses dget.

              Whether to skip signature verification on downloads.

              Allow to import a package with the same debian version.

              When importing the Debian patch, use the author identity as comitter identity.

              When importing the Debian patch, use the author date as comitter date.

              Warning:  Git  will subtly misbehave if the committer date of a commit is not later
              than or equal to all its parents.


       Several gbp.conf files are parsed to set defaults for the above commandline arguments. See
       the gbp.conf(5) manpage for details.
