       gbp  import-dsc  imports  a Debian source package into a Git repository, notes the package
       version in the commit logs, and commits the change.  All  information,  including  package
       name,  version,  Debian   diffs,  and  upstream source, is automatically detected from the
       source package.

       If the command is run from within an existing repository, it will  import  into  this;  if
       not, a new repository named as the Debian source package is created.

              Whether to use colored output.

              Colors  to  use  in  output (when color is enabled). The format for COLOR_SCHEME is
              '<debug>:<info>:<warning>:<error>'.  Numerical values and color names are accepted,
              empty  fields  imply the default color. For example, --git-color-scheme='cyan:34::'
              would show debug messages in cyan, info messages in  blue  and  other  messages  in
              default (i.e. warning and error messages in red).

              The  branch  in  the  Git  repository the upstream sources are put onto. Default is

              The branch in the Git repository the  debian  sources  are  put  onto.  Default  is

              GPG sign all created tags

              use this keyid for gpg signing tags

              use this tag format when tagging Debian versions, default is debian/%(version)s

              use this tag format when tagging upstream versions, default is upstream/%(version)s

              Don't create Debian tag after importing the Debian patch. This can be useful if you
              already created a package but want to further work on it after  importing  it  into

              filter out files glob-matching pattern. Can be given multiple times.

              generate pristine-tar delta file

              Download the source package instead of looking for it in the local file system. The
              argument can either be a source-package name or a URL. The former uses  apt-get  to
              download the source while the later uses dget.

              Whether to skip signature verification on downloads.

              Allow one to import a package with the same debian version.

              When importing the Debian patch, use the author identity as committer identity.

              When importing the Debian patch, use the author date as committer date.

              Warning:  Git  will subtly misbehave if the committer date of a commit is not later
              than or equal to all its parents.

              Create missing upstream and debian branch if missing.


       Several gbp.conf files are parsed to set defaults for the  above  command-line  arguments.
