- package upload tool for Debian
This is a tool for uploading Debian packages into the archive. You may specifyto which host it should upload the file by passing it anhost
argument. If omitted, dput uses the host specified bydefault_host
(or, historically default_host_non-us
) configuration option.Also you have to pass the program one or more name of package.changes
files and then they will be sequentially uploaded.This program will then upload the package for you into the archive, using aselected upload method. Currently dput supports ftp, scp, rsync, http,https, and local. Themethod scripts have been split from the main script so it is easy to addnew methods. Look in /usr/share/dput/ for examples.
Should something go wrong with your upload to destinations using theDebian upload queue daemon (e.g. ftp-master), you can remove files fromthe upload queue with dcut(1).
