dput-ng is a Debian package upload tool which provides an easy to use
interface to Debian (like) package archive hosting facilities. It allows
anyone who works with Debian packages to upload their work to a remote
service, including Debian's ftp-master, mentors.debian.net, Launchpad or other
package hosting facilities for Debian package maintainers.
dput-ng features many enhancements over dput, such as more comprehensive
checks, an easy to use plugin system, and code designed to handle the numerous
archives that any Debian package hacker will interact with.
dput-ng aims to be backwards compatible with dput in command-line flags,
configuration files, and expected behavior.

dput-ng (1.8) unstable; urgency=low
* The "There is no sin except stupidity" release
[Sebastian Ramacher]
* Fix handling of IdentiyFile in sftp uploader. paramiko 1.10 fixed the
parsing of IdentityFile and now always gives a list. (Closes: #718011)
* sftp: Check if incoming directory exists before uploading. (Closes:
[Paul Tagliamonte]
* Add lots of spew to dcut when it fails to find the local DM key explaining
exactly why it might not be there, and a hint as to where to look.
(Closes: 740665), Thank you, mika!
* Add a new -S / --save flag to save the dcut output before we sent it to
ftp-master. (Closes: 740663). Thanks to (the one, the only!) Jakub Wilk.
[ Scott Kitterman ]
* Drop trailing "/ubuntu" from ppa stanza, to support the new form of the
upload path needed for PPAs based on derived distributions.  Also switch
ubuntu stanza to upload to "/ubuntu" rather than "/" (Closes: #754527)
(LP: #1340130)
-  Changes shamelessly cribbed from Colin Watson's dput update
2013-11-14 - Paul Tagliamonte <paultag@debian.org>
dput-ng (1.7) unstable; urgency=low
* The "Get two birds stoned at once." release
[ Paul Tagliamonte ]
* Fix up default host argument. This caused the first block with the
default_host_main argument set to be considered the default host, rather
than the value of default_host_main. (Closes: #729280)
* Add experimental support for `dud` files, for Debile.
[ Arno Töll ]
* Be more explicit how to override dcut dm's UID check
2013-09-08 - Paul Tagliamonte <paultag@debian.org>
dput-ng (1.6) unstable; urgency=low
* The "Well, shit, release names are hard too" release
[ Paul Tagliamonte ]
* Add BYHAND handling. (Closes: #719975)
* Change default profile to "boring" rather than "debian". This caused
non-Debian targets to target Debian codenames.
Which sucks. (Closes: #718384)
[ James Page ]
* Add in codenames for Ubuntu. (Closes: #714103)
[ Luca Falavigna ]
* Fix path of local profiles in bash-completion script.
* Install dput.commands.contrib package.
* Add bash completion for dcut.
* Add support for Deb-o-Matic builddep command.
2013-06-20 - Paul Tagliamonte <paultag@debian.org>
dput-ng (1.5) unstable; urgency=low
* The "Command line flags are hard" release
[ Paul Tagliamonte ]
* Add per-host loading of command files by partially parsing command
line arguments.
* Add disallowed_distributions.
* Apply a file name heuristic to tell whether a positional is a host or a
target (Closes: #710150).
* Add codename groups to vital targets, limit security uploads
to the right servers (Closes: #708575).
[ Luca Falavigna ]
* Implement dcut commands for Deb-o-Matic.
[ Bernhard R. Link ]
* Reimplement the SFTP uploader <explain details here>
[ Arno Töll ]
* Be more precise about our configuration file inheritance in dput(5).
* Fix "dcut: manpage and --help talk about -U and --upload" by replacing those
parts in the text by the 'upload' command (Closes: #699812)
* Make the login name determination more portable (Closes: #709831)
* Fix "Allow to give out dm permissions without using local keyring" by
* documenting the --force option in the man page (Closes: #711057)
[ Wolodja Wentland ]
* Allow uploads to mentors to target every distribution
[ Sebastian Ramacher ]
* Add a space in --debug's help message.
[ Thomas Preud'homme ]
* Fixed a typo (DEBNAME → DEBFULLNAME) in the dcut(1) manpage.
