README.svn-mergeWithUpstream

HOWTO use dpatch with a debian/-only VCS layout
===============================================

This HOWTO has been primarily written for users of svn-buildpackage in
mergeWithUpstream mode. In this case, normally only the debian/- directory and
patches (normally in debian/patches/) are stored under VCS-control. This setup
does not include the complete package source.

However, dpatch already can handle this layout perfectly via the -b swtich.
Optional to this switch you can give the full path to the .orig.tar.gz
tarball, e.g.:

$ dpatch-edit-patch -b /usr/local/src/foo/foo-1.0.tar.gz

If you do not provide the tarball, dpatch tries to call the hook
script set in conf_getorigtargz (in $HOME/.dpatch.conf) or in the
DPEP_GETORIGTARGZ environment variable. See the dpatch-edit-patch
manual for the exact steps taken.

Using the first option, you can configure dpatch to look at the "right" place
by defining conf_origtargzpath in ${HOME}/.dpatch.conf. Say for example your
sources always reside in /usr/local/src/packages/${PACKAGE}, then add the
following to your .dpatch.conf (BASH syntax!)

/---- .dpatch.conf -----------------------------------------------------------
# the following is necessary, because dpatch maybe determines the variables
# too late
PACKAGENAME="$(dpkg-parsechangelog | \
	sed -n '/^Source:/{s/^Source:[[:space:]]\+\(.*\)/\1/;p;q}')"
UPSTREAMVERSION="$(dpkg-parsechangelog | \
	sed -n '/^Version:/{s/^Version:[[:space:]]\+\([0-9]\+:\)\?\([^-]\+\).*/\2/;p;q}')"

# simply adjust the following variable for your needs
conf_origtargzpath="/usr/local/src/packages/${PACKAGENAME}"
\-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Maybe you have different locations, because you are part of several projects.
In this case, you can do the following:

/---- .dpatch.conf -----------------------------------------------------------
# the following is necessary, because dpatch maybe determines the variables
# too late
PACKAGENAME="$(dpkg-parsechangelog | \
	sed -n '/^Source:/{s/^Source:[[:space:]]\+\(.*\)/\1/;p;q}')"
UPSTREAMVERSION="$(dpkg-parsechangelog | \
	sed -n '/^Version:/{s/^Version:[[:space:]]\+\([0-9]\+:\)\?\([^-]\+\).*/\2/;p;q}')"

# simply adjust the following test and variable for your needs
if [[ `pwd` =~ '^.*/debian-med/trunk/packages/.*$' ]]
then
	conf_origtargzpath="/usr/local/src/packages/debian-med/trunk/packages/${PACKAGENAME}"
else
	conf_origtargzpath="/usr/local/src/packages/${PACKAGENAME}"
fi
\-----------------------------------------------------

So you simply run

$ dpatch-edit-patch -b

in your VCS copy and dpatch automatically figures out the correct place to
look for the upstream tarball.
