devscripts and no-change rebuilds

leave a comment »

Yesterday, Bryce sponsored my upload of devscripts 2.10.39ubuntu3 which implements correct mangling of debian/changelog while doing Ubuntu’s no-change rebuilds.

It happens developers have to upload a no-change rebuild (i.e. to clear NBS packages), they have to adjust changelog entry to reflect it’s a no-change upload by appending a “buildX” string to Debian version field instead of the stock “ubuntuX” one. Now it’s just a matter of launching dch –rebuild (or simply dch -R) to have the correct version number.

Patch can be found here, please notify me in case of mistakes. I hope it can be useful for you too 😉
