NAMEgbp-pull - Safely update a repository from remote
SYNOPSISgbp-pull [ --verbose ] [ --force ] [ --redo-pq ] [ --[no-]pristine-tar ] [ --debian-branch=branch_name ] [ --upstream-branch=branch_name ]
DESCRIPTIONgbp-pull updates the debian, upstream and pristine-tar branches from a remote repository in one go. It checks if the update is safe (would result in a fast-forward merge) and aborts otherwise.
OPTIONS--force force a branch update even if this results in a non fast forward update. Warning: Forcing a branch updates makes you lose your modifications. --redo-pq also rebuild the corresponding patch-queue using gbp-pq. Warning: This drops the patch-queue branch if it exists. --debian-branch=branch_name The branch in the Git repository the Debian package is being developed on, default is master. --upstream-branch=branch_name The branch in the Git repository the upstream sources are put onto. Default is upstream. --verbose -v verbose execution --pristine-tar Whether to update the pristine-tar branch too.
EXIT CODESWhen gbp-pull finishes it indicates success or failure with it's exit code: 0 Success. 1 An error occured during the pull, see the printed error message for details. 2 At least one branch couldn't be fast forwarded.
