       dput - Debian package upload tool


       dput [-h] [-d] [-c FILE] [-D] [-e DAYS] [-F] [-f] [-l] [-U] [-o] [-O OVERRIDE] [-S UNSET]
       [-P] [-s] [-u] [-v] [-V] [HOST] CHANGES-FILE [CHANGES-FILE ...]


       dput-ng is a Debian package upload tool which provides an easy to use interface to Debian
       (like) package archive hosting facilities. It allows anyone who works with Debian packages
       to upload their work to a remote service, including Debian’s ftp-master,, Launchpad or other package hosting facilities for Debian package

       HOST may optionally specify a target stanza from any configured configured profile which
       is selected as a upload target. If HOST is omitted a default host using the heuristic
       described below is selected.

       The only mandatory argument is a CHANGES-FILE which is interpreted as a Debian
       package.changes file denoting the desired package to be uploaded.

       Packages being uploaded already, but not processed yet can be removed later from the
       destination using dcut.


       -c, --config=FILE
           Configuration file to parse. This option will override all other configuration files.

       -d, --debug
           Enable debug messages. Repeat twice to increase the verbosity level.

       -D, --dinstall
           Ignored silently for compatibility with old-style dput command lines. Please use a
           post-upload hook or similar to reproduce this functionality.

       -e, --delayed=DAYS
           Upload to the delayed queue, instead of the usual incoming directory. This option
           takes an argument from 0 to 15 corresponding to the respective DELAYED queue.

       -F, --full-upload-log' Write more verbose .upload logs. When set to, upload logs will
       include more details. This setting overrides profile defaults when provided.

       -f, --force
           Force an upload, even if the upload log exists already.

       -l, --lintian
           Run Lintian before uploading the package. Note, this option is deprecated. Profile
           targets have the ability to properly handle invoking lintian before pushing it to the
           remote host, such as the run_lintian key.

               This option is a shortcut for --override "run_lintian=true"

       -o, --check-only
           Only run pre-upload checks for the package, do not actually upload. This is useful to
           help in testing new checks, or verifying the profile will work as expected.

       -O, --override=OVERRIDE
           Override profile key. This option takes the highest precedence and replaces any
           profile setting. Use this switch if you want to change a configured profile value
           without changing the profile itself.

               This option accepts any key which can be configured in a profile (see
               *dput(5)*). Sub keys are addressed using a dot notation. Keys are separated
               using a equals sign ("=").

               For example, to override the 'allow_dcut' you may do:

               --override "allow_dcut=true"

               The '--override' option may be repeated:

               --override "check-debs.enforce=debs" --override "check-debs.skip=false"

               Providing the same key on the command line several times will be additive.

               Un-setting a key entirely can be achieved using the '-S' option. Such
               overrides take no argument. Thus, the command line

               --override "allow_dcut=true" --unset "run_lintian"

               will set 'allow_dcut' to 'TRUE' and revert the 'run_lintian' key to
               whatever the internal default value is set.

       -P, --passive
           Force FTP passive mode when uploading the package through FTP. This option is
           deprecated - please declare this in the target profile.

               This option is a shortcut for --override "passive_ftp=true"

       -s, --simulate
           Simulate the upload only. This runs all pre-upload checks, initializes the upload
           handler but does not actually push any files to the remote host.

               This argument can be repeated twice in which case also the network
               connection is set-up (for example logging in through the FTP or SFTP
               protocol) and tested for its functionality.

           Override the configured profile key by unsetting its value. See -O for a full
           explanation of the behavior.

       -U, --no-upload-log
           Do not write a .upload log file after uploading.

       -u, --unchecked
           Do not check GnuPG signature. You may also set this in your profile with the
           allow_unsigned_uploads key.

       -v, --version
           Ignored silently for compatibility with old-style dput command lines.

       -V, --check-version
           Ignored silently for compatibility with old-style dput command lines.

           Target host to upload a package. This refers to any existing upload site, which either
           can be a section in old-style files, or alternatively any profile in a read
           dput.d directory. If HOST was not supplied, the (first) profile having the
           default_host_main flag set to a non-empty string will be selected. If neither, HOST
           was present, nor any profile setting the upload host, dput-ng scans for a profile
           called ftp-master which will be used on a successful look-up.

           A Debian package.changes file. Arguments may be repeated several times to upload more
           than one package at once.


       Profiles may define upload HOST names, log-in details and their required upload methods
       used to upload packages. Moreover, profiles define checks which are running before and
       after uploading. Their format is described in dput(5).

       Additionally, dput reads old-style configuration files from INI style configuration files.
       This format is deprecated for use in dput-ng and described in In particular
       this configuration file format does not support all configurable settings which are
       specific to dput-ng.

       It is possible to run dput with any combination of new-style and old-style configuration
       files. When both types of files are present,



           A runtime check returned an error

           An internal error was detected, for example while loading configuration files

           An upload error was detected, for example a permission or authentication problem while
           uploading files
