I'm happy to announce the relesae of git-buildpackage 0.8.8:


Here's a list of changes:

git-buildpackage (0.8.8) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Chris Lamb ]
  * [03276df] Add ability to specify the clone target to gbp-import-{dsc,srpm}
    (Closes: #846567)

  [ Guido Günther ]
  * [0a9cf44] docs: setting target dir is supported for --download too
  * [f631e64] import_dsc: fail properly again without a package to import

    target dir always raises an error

    (Closes: #846936)
  * [ce42aadc] pq_rpm: use relative path names for patches Based on a patch

  * [fa091b6] rpm: improve error message on specfile patch parser errors.

    to request help output.
    (Closes: #847464)

Thanks to everybody who contributed to this release. As usual the
package is available via Debian unstable:
