        aede-policy - check change set is ready for aede

        The aede-policy command is used to verify that a change set is ready to end development.
        This is intended to be used by the develop_end_policy_command field of the project
        configuration file.
                develop_end_policy_command =
                    "aede-policy -p $project -c $change all";
        If any of the pilies should fail, the aede-policy command will fail with an exit status
        of 1.  This, in turn, will cause the aede(1) command to leave the change in the being
        developed state.

        Note that the aede(1) command sets the appropriate environment variables, so the -Project
        and -Change options are rarely necessary.

        If no policies appear on the command line, the aede-policy project specific attribute
        will be checked.  If it exists, it contains a list of space separated policy names.

        There are a range of policies that can be selected.

        all     Check all of the copyright, crlf, description and printable policies.

                This policy checks that each file in the change set contains a copyright notice
                of the form
                        Copyright (C) year something
                where year is the current year (you can have a range of years, too).  Binary
                files are ignored.  Change sets marked with a foreign-copyright=true attribute
                are ignored, as are files similarly marked.  The something part is either the
                project specific copyright-owner attribute, or the executing users full name.

        crlf    This policy cheks that all files are using UNIX line termination (NL), not DOS
                line termination (CRLF).  Binary files are ignored.

                This policy checks that the change set brief_description and description
                attributes have been updated to something other than the defaults.

                This policy checks that the FSF address, if present in source files, is up-to-
                date.  This is useful for Free Software projects.


                This policy checks files that cite the GNU GPL in their file headers, to be sure
                they contain the correct version of the GNU GPL.  Defaults to version 3 if no
                version number specified.


                This policy checks that files have this maximum line length.  Defaults to 80 if
                no width is specified.  Can be overridden per file using the aede-policy-line-
                length file attribute.

                This policy requires that there be no fmerge(1) conflict lines present in any
                source files.  The name comes from the name of the package containing this tool:

                This policy requires that there be no merge(1) conflict lines present in any
                source files.  The name comes from the name of the package containing this tool:

                This policy checks that files have no tabs characters in them.  This is useful
                when a team of developers all use different editors and differnt tab stops.  By
                only using spaces, the code is presented to all developers the same way.

                This check is not applied to change sets with a Iforeign-copyright=true
                attribute, because you have little control over them (change the tabs in a later
                change set, if at all).

                This check is not applied to files which are called Makefile or similar, and it
                is not applied to files carrying a aede-policy-tabs-allowed=true attribute.

                This policy checks that each file in the change set contains only printable text
                characters and white space.  The content-type file attribute is taken into
                account; if there is no content-type file attribute, or there is no charset
                specified by the content-type file attribute, plain 7-bit ASCII text is assumed.

        text    This policy checks that each file in the change set contains only text, although
                international character sets are acceptable.  This is basically a test for NUL
                characters, because everything else could be part of a valid character encoding
                of some international character set.

                This policy checks that there is no white space on the ends of lines, that there
                are no blank lines at the ends of files.

        If no policy is specified, only the description policy will be checked.


        The following options are understood:

        -Change number
                This option may be used to specify a particular change within a project.  See
                aegis(1) for a complete description of this option.

                This option may be used to obtain more information about how to use the aede-
                policy program.

        -List   List all of the available validations.

        -Project name
                This option may be used to select the project of interest.  When no -Project
                option is specified, the AEGIS_PROJECT environment variable is consulted.  If
                that does not exist, the user's $HOME/.aegisrc file is examined for a default
                project field (see aeuconf(5) for more information).  If that does not exist,
                when the user is only working on changes within a single project, the project
                name defaults to that project.  Otherwise, it is an error.

        See also aegis(1) for options common to all aegis commands.

        All options may be abbreviated; the abbreviation is documented as the upper case letters,
        all lower case letters and underscores (_) are optional.  You must use consecutive
        sequences of optional letters.

        All options are case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or lower case or a
        combination of both, case is not important.

        For example: the arguments "-project, "-PROJ" and "-p" are all interpreted to mean the
        -Project option.  The argument "-prj" will not be understood, because consecutive
        optional characters were not supplied.

        Options and other command line arguments may be mixed arbitrarily on the command line,
        after the function selectors.

        The GNU long option names are understood.  Since all option names for aede-policy are
        long, this means ignoring the extra leading '-'.  The "--option=value" convention is also


        The aede-policy command will exit with a status of 1 on any error.  The aede-policy
        command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.


        See aegis(1) for a list of environment variables which may affect this command.  See
        aepconf(5) for the project configuration file's project_specific field for how to set
        environment variables for all commands executed by Aegis.
