gbp-pull - Safely update a repository from remote
gbp pull [ --version ] [ --help ] [ --verbose ] [ --color=[auto|on|off] ] [ --color- scheme=COLOR_SCHEME ] [ --force ] [ --redo-pq ] [ --[no-]pristine-tar ] [ --ignore-branch ] [ --debian-branch=branch_name ] [ --upstream-branch=branch_name ] [ --depth=depth ]
gbp pull updates the debian, upstream and pristine-tar branches from a remote repository in one go. It checks if the update is safe (would result in a fast-forward merge) and aborts otherwise.
--version Print version of the program, i.e. version of the git-buildpackage suite -v --verbose Verbose execution -h --help Print help and exit --color=[auto|on|off] Whether to use colored output. --color-scheme=COLOR_SCHEME 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). --force force a branch update even if this results in a non fast forward update. Warning: Forcing a branch update makes you lose your modifications. --redo-pq also rebuild the corresponding patch-queue using gbp pq. Warning: This drops the patch-queue branch if it exists. --ignore-branch Don't care if we're on a branch or in detached head state. --debian-branch=branch_name The branch in the Git repository the Debian package is being developed on, default is master. --upstream-branch=branch_name The branch in the Git repository the upstream sources are put onto. Default is upstream. --depth=depth Git history depth, for deepening shallow git clones. --pristine-tar Whether to update the pristine-tar branch too.
When gbp pull finishes, it indicates success or failure with its exit code: 0 Success. 1 An error occurred during the pull, see the printed error message for details. 2 At least one branch couldn't be fast forwarded.
Several gbp.conf files are parsed to set defaults for the above command-line arguments. See the gbp.conf(5)> manpage for details.
