NAME

repoman - Gentoo's program to enforce a minimal level of quality assurance in packages added to the portage tree  

SYNOPSIS

repoman [option] [mode]  

DESCRIPTION

Quality is job zero.

repoman checks the quality of ebuild repositories.

Note: repoman commit only works inside local cvs, git, or subversion repositories.  

OPTIONS

-a, --ask
Request a confirmation before commiting
--digest=<y|n>
Automatically update Manifest digests for modified files. This option triggers a behavior that is very similar to that enabled by FEATURES="digest" in make.conf(5). In order to enable this behavior by default for repoman alone, add --digest=y to the REPOMAN_DEFAULT_OPTS variable in make.conf(5). The manifest-check mode will automatically ignore the --digest option.

NOTE: This option does not trigger update of digests for Manifest DIST entries that already exist. Replacement of existing Manifest DIST entries can be forced by using the manifest mode together with the --force option.

--force
Force commit to proceed, regardless of QA issues. For convenience, this option causes the most time consuming QA checks to be skipped. The commit message will include an indication that this option has been enabled, together with the usual portage version stamp.

When used together with manifest mode, --force causes existing digests to be replaced for any files that exist in ${DISTDIR}. Existing digests are assumed to be correct for files that would otherwise have to be downloaded in order to recompute digests. WARNING: When replacing existing digests, it is the user's responsibility to ensure that files contained in ${DISTDIR} have the correct identities. Especially beware of partially downloaded files.

-q, --quiet
Be less verbose about extraneous info
-p, --pretend
Don't commit or fix anything; just show what would be done
-x, --xmlparse
Forces the metadata.xml parse check to be carried out
-v, --verbose
Displays every package name while checking
--echangelog=<y|n|force>
For commit mode, call echangelog if ChangeLog is unmodified (or regardless of modification if 'force' is specified). This option can be enabled by default for a particular repository by setting "update-changelog = true" in metadata/layout.conf (see portage(5)).
--experimental-inherit=<y|n>
Enable experimental inherit.missing checks which may misbehave when the internal eclass database becomes outdated.
--if-modified=<y|n>
Only check packages that have uncommitted modifications
-i, --ignore-arches
Ignore arch-specific failures (where arch != host)
--ignore-default-opts
Do not use the REPOMAN_DEFAULT_OPTS environment variable.
-I, --ignore-masked
Ignore masked packages (not allowed with commit mode)
--include-arches ARCHES
A space separated list of arches used to filter the selection of profiles for dependency checks.
-d, --include-dev
Include dev profiles in dependency checks.
-e <y|n>, --include-exp-profiles=<y|n>
Include exp profiles in dependency checks.
--unmatched-removal
Enable strict checking of package.mask and package.unmask files for unmatched removal atoms.
--without-mask
Behave as if no package.mask entries exist (not allowed with commit mode)
-m, --commitmsg
Adds a commit message via the command line
-M, --commitmsgfile
Adds a commit message from the specified file
-V, --version
Show version info
-h, --help
Show this screen
 

MODES

full
Scan directory tree for QA issues (full listing)
help
Show this screen
scan
Scan directory tree for QA issues (short listing)
fix
Fix simple QA issues (stray digests, missing digests)

Generate a Manifest (fetches distfiles if necessary). See the --force option if you would like to replace existing distfiles digests.
manifest-check
Check Manifests for missing or incorrect digests
