       cvs-debrelease - upload a cvs-buildpackage/cvs-debuild generated package


       cvs-debrelease [cvs-debrelease options] [--dopts [dupload/dput options]]


       cvs-debrelease  is  run  from  the  CVS  working  directory after cvs-buildpackage or cvs-
       debuild.  It uses the cvs-buildpackage system to locate the  .changes  file  generated  in
       that  run.   It  then  uploads the package using debrelease(1), which in turn calls either
       dupload or dput.  Note that the --dopts option must be specified to distinguish  the  cvs-
       debrelease  options  from the dupload or dput options.  Also, the devscripts configuration
       files will be read, as described in the debrelease(1) manpage.

       Note that unlike cvs-buildpackage, the only way to specify the source package name is with
       the -P option; you cannot simply have it as the last command-line parameter.


       All  current cvs-buildpackage options are silently accepted; however, only the ones listed
       below have any effect.  For more details on  all  of  them,  see  the  cvs-buildpackage(1)
       manpage.  All debrelease options (as listed below) are also accepted.

       --dupload, --dput
              This specifies which uploader program to use; the default is dupload.

       -adebian-architecture, -tGNU-system-type
              See  dpkg-architecture(1)  for  a  description  of  these options.  They affect the
              search for the .changes file.  They are provided to mimic the  behaviour  of  dpkg-
              buildpackage when determining the name of the .changes file.

              The name of the CVS module.

              The name of the package.

              The version number of the package.

       -Ttag  The CVS tag to use for exporting sources.

       -Rroot directory
              Root of the original sources archive.

       -Wwork directory
              The full path name for the cvs-buildpackage working directory.

              This option provides the CVS default module prefix.

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

       --help, --version
              Show help message and version information respectively.
