NAME

ebump - Gentoo: Ebuild revision bumper  

SYNTAX

ebump [option] <package-name[-version]>

 

DESCRIPTION

ebump bumps the revision of a particular ebuild, and all auxiliary files in the files/ directory that have a matching version suffix.

By default, the all new revision files will be added to the VCS.

You must stand in the directory of the ebuild to be bumped.

 

OPTIONS

-C
--no-vcs

Do not add new files to VCS.

-V
--version

Display version information and exit.

-v
--verbose

Increase verbosity level. May be used more than once.

-q
--quiet

Do not output any non-essential information.

-a
--no-auxfiles

don't bump auxfiles (files/*)

-c
--no-changelog

do not update ChangeLog (via echangelog)

-m <ChangeLog text>
--message <ChangeLog text>

Specifies the message to add to the ChangeLog, instead of the standard placeholder.

-d
--delete-old

Delete old revision and old auxiliary files from VCS. This is dangerous and should only be used if you know exactly what you are doing, because
1) the old revision may be stable on a different architecture than the one you are working on.
2) the auxiliary files may be required by other versions of the ebuild.
3) the new revision should usually undergo a period of testing before being marked stable.

 

CONFIGURATION

/etc/gentoolkit/ebump.conf
~/.gentoo/ebump.conf
