dpt-takeover -- take over a package for the Debian Perl Group
dpt takeover -t top-directory [option...] package...
dpt takeover helps taking over a package and adopting its control files for maintenance by the Debian Perl group. dpt takeover first creates a local Git repository either from existing Git repository specified with the -g option, or by importing all package versions available on snapshot.debian.org via gbp-import-dscs(1). Next dpt takeover adds suitable entries to debian/changelog, using information given by the -m or the -a options. Next dpt takeover runs "dpt-packagecheck -a -A -C -c" to adjust the control fields. Finally, the resulting Git repository is pushed to the Debian collaborative server, alioth.debian.org, unless the -n option is used.
-t top-directory (mandatory) The location of the top level directory, containing packages/. -m URL The address of the message with which the previous maintainer requests adoption. It is included in the commit message and debian/changelog. Conflicts with -a. -a number RFA/ITA bug number. Suitable "Closes: #nnnnnn" is added to debian/changelog. Conflicts with -m. -g URL URL of an existing Git repository to clone. If not present gbp-import-dscs is used to prime the local Git repository from the package versions available on snapshot.debian.org. -n Local operation. The resulting Git repository is not pushed to alioth.debian.org.
