Using CVS for package development


	I would really like to get into using CVS for my package
 development tree, but I have been held back by the hassle of
 releasing packages. I have no problems testing packages with
 ./debian/rules binary
 and I always used dpkg-buildpackage for the last step, so I have
 written a script (cvs-buildpackage?) which exports things from CVS to
 a directory where I keep the upstream version files, and runs

	This was inspired by a script Lars Wirzenius wrote, I have
 just made it:
 a) require less input (it can parse the changelog file now), I just
    run it from my working directory.
 b) more robust, by using dpkg-parselog just like dpkg-buildpackage
 c) a complete wrapper around dpkg-buildpackage, by passing on *all*
    options of dpkg-buildpackage.

	The credit should really go to Lars Wirzenius and Ian Jackson,
 since this borrows from their work. If there is enough interest, I
 could package this up. (Oh, this is a sh script, and only needs
 dpkg-dev, no perl ;-)

 This is a wrapper for dpkg-buildpackage, and derives the option
 parsing from it.
