I'm happy to announce the relesae of git-buildpackage 0.8.0:


Here's a list of changes:

git-buildpackage (0.8.0) experimental; urgency=medium

  [ Markus Lehtonen ]
  * [c5cfb5e] Introduce gbp-rpm-ch.
    Initial version of gbp rpm-ch command, a tool for maintaining
    RPM changelogs. The new command supports %changelog section inside spec
    files as well as separate changelog files ("OBS style"). (Closes: #808027)

  [ Guido Günther ]
  * [b4b7f9f] clone: Be a bit more verbose and let the user know that we
    started cloning
  * [1f58d21] PatchSeries: Strip comment from patch names (Closes: #825536)
  * [1989c32] pq: Report number of imported patches
  * [dcb145f] Use existing option as example in gbp-buildpackage manpage.
    Thanks to Nicolas Braud-Santoni (Closes: #828703)
  * [f1c64e2] manpages: add examples for gbp {clone,import-dsc}
  * [83dfa67] GitRepository: Deleting a non-existing branch should not throw
    an error
  * [ba7b087] docs: Clarify some gbp pq options
  * [ebc6b91] import_orig: Recover from import errors by winding back branches
    and tags to their pre-error states (Closes: #828838)
  * [4964234] dch: Log version number when preparing a snapshot
    (Closes: #829025)
  * [7a6641a] import-dsc: Don't fail on 1.0 non-native packages without a
    Debian version
    (Closes: #829070)
  * [8c4460c] Actually install gbp-rpm-ch and unbreak manpage generation
  * [d92b656] tests: Omit build dependend variables from epydocs
    based on a patch from Sascha Steinbiss (Closes: #827546)
  * [d977377] Set date in manpages based on last changelog entry
    for reproducibility. This can be reverted once ocbook2man is fixed
    Thanks to Sascha Steinbiss for the patch
  * [53f37eb] import-orig: Make default import message more gbp-dch friendly.
  * [312c9b9] Use imperative for git messages as suggested in gh:#26.
  * [2bc3801] import_dsc: don't assume component tarballs have the correct name.
    (Closes: #829458)
  * [bc3805c] import_orig: add support for importing additional tarballs.
    We expect the additional tarballs to be located next to the orig tarball
    and to be already named properly. (Closes: #561071)
  * [870c901] Docs: Clarify on possible key names and priorities in gbp.conf
  * [7a521d4] Handle Ctrl-C more gracefully
  * [b540c98] additional tarballs: allow one to configure components via gbp.conf
  * [1d4d4a2] config: Allow one to give list values in plural form
  * [700e164] config: Properly abort on config file parsing errors
    instead of printing an exception on the console
  * [3b4912d] config: always use 'gbp <cmd>' in help output.
    The {git,gbp}- versions went away ages ago
  * [f545010] Give more instructions when config is unparseable
    and make return codes and messages consistent.
    (Closes: #733640)
  * [a0ed81b] Require python 2.7. It's the default up to Wheezy
    (Closes: #685031)

  [ Otto Kekäläinen ]
  * [af16f59] Fix simple spelling errors in comments and strings
  * [f28a26b] Fix spelling of existant->existent in function names, strings
    and comments

Thanks to everybody who contributed to this release. As usual the
package is available via Debian - this time in experimental:
