NAME

       grep-excuses - search the testing excuses files for a specific maintainer

SYNOPSIS

       grep-excuses [options] [maintainer|package]

DESCRIPTION

       grep-excuses  downloads  the  update_excuses.html  file  and  greps  it  for the specified
       maintainer name.  The libwww-perl package is required for this  script.   If  no  name  is
       given  on  the  command  line, first the environment variable DEBFULLNAME is used if it is
       defined, and failing that, the configuration variable described below is used.

OPTIONS

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

       --wipnity, -w
              Get  information  from <http://release.debian.org/migration/>.  A package name must
              be given when using this option.

       --help Show a brief usage message.

       --version
              Show version and copyright information.

CONFIGURATION VARIABLES

       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 variable is:

       GREP_EXCUSES_MAINTAINER
              The  default  maintainer,  email or package to grep for if none is specified on the
              command line.
