forward-patch - Forward a patch to CPAN's request tracker
forward-patch [option...] PATCH [DISTRIBUTION] Examples: $ forward-patch some-patch.patch Some-Dist # explicitly set dist name $ forward-patch some-patch.patch # make f-p read dist name from debian/control
If the distribution name is not set from the command-line forward-patch will also look at the "Homepage" field in the "debian/control" file or the "Source" filed in "debian/copyright" and extracts the name from there. forward-patch will use by default the "DEBFULLNAME" and "DEBEMAIL" environment variables to retrieve information about the ticket author. If not set, getpwuid and the "EMAIL" environment variable will be used.
--tracker tracker-name Instructs forward-patch to use the specified issue tracker. Supported values for tracker-name are: github Uses GitHub API to submit the patch as an issue. Requires proper "resources->repository" in META. cpan Submits the patch to <http://rt.cpan.org>. The default is determined by the "resources.bugs" and "resources.repository" values in META.
