DPATCH-GET-ORIGTARGZ(1)     General Commands Manual    DPATCH-GET-ORIGTARGZ(1)



NAME
       dpatch-get-origtargz - Obtain upstream tarball

SYNOPSIS
       dpatch-get-origtargz <origtardir>

DESCRIPTION
       This  manual  page  documents  briefly the dpatch-get-origtargz command
       which verifies whether there is a upstream tarball for the current work
       directory's source package in the directory pointed to by <origtardir>.
       dpatch-get-origtargz will try to find the upstream tarball using one of
       the following methods:
       1) in the directory pointed to by the DPGO_ORIGTARDIR environment vari-
       able,
       2) in all directories  listed  in  the  DPGO_ORIGTARGZPATH  environment
       variable (colon-separated list of directories),
       3) in the parent directory of the current work directory,
       4) on the Debian mirror configured into apt, and
       5) on the Internet, using the first URL found in debian/watch.

       If not, it tries to obtain the upstream tarball from a number of possi-
       ble sources: The parent directory, the apt repository  configured,  and
       finally, the internet server pointed to by debian/watch.
