This package provides the capability of automatically publish a
deb package directly from the CVS source. The CVS source must be
already in the format managed by cvs-buildpackage, since
cvs-buildpackage will be used to generate the deb.
This package is useful to release the 'unstable' version of a
software. The control of when to release the deb is made by
watching the debian/changelog file. This script maintains a list
of which packages to automate and the version they are. Every
time you increases the version in changelog, the package you are
working will be generated.
It will also call dupload to send the generated package to
your deb server (which can be the main debian server or your
software house's debian server).
