dpt-forward - Forward a bug or a patch upstream
dpt forward [option...] path/to/some.patch [bug-number] dpt forward [option...] bug-number [path/to/some.patch]
--dist name -d name Distribution name. Determined from META, the "Homepage" field in debian/control file or the "Source" field in debian/copyright, in that order. --force Normally <dpt-forward> checks if the bug/patch is already forwarded upstream and aborts if so. With this option, the check is still done, but execution is not aborted and only a warning is issued. --meta file Specifies the location of the META file. Defaults to META.json or META.yml in the current directory, whichever is found first. --mode bug|patch -m bug|patch Mode of operation. Should rarely be needed. Determines the meaning of the arguments. bug means that the first argument is a bug number, and the second argument is a patch file name. patch means the opposite. Determined from the first non-option argument and whether it looks like a bug number or a patch file name. --offline-test All operations that require network are replaced with stubs, allowing for off-line testing. --ticket number If present, the information is submitted to the ticket as an additional comment. If missing, a new ticket is created. --tracker name -t name Tracker used by the distribution. dpt forward currently supports cpan (<http://rt.cpan.org>) and github. The default is determined from the "resources->bugtracker->web" field of META. If that field is not present, cpan is used. --tracker-url url -u url Tracker URL to submit the information to. Taken from the "resources->bugtracker->web" field of META. Defaults to "https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=dist-name" for cpan and is mandatory for github.
