I'm happy to announce the relesae of git-buildpackage 0.8.15:


Here's a list of changes:

git-buildpackage (0.8.15) experimental; urgency=medium

  [ Guido Günther ]
  * [9fa917a] pull: give more detail about what we updated
  * [1bf6ef4] docs: use [DEFAULT] section in import example so it also fits
    the "gbp dch" usecase
  * [ead7157] buildpackage: make --git-export=WC simpler to use by implying
    --git-ignore-new --git-ignore-branch. There's no point in these safety
    checks when we export the working copy as is.  (Closes: #822823)
  * [1832d14] Drop long deprecated --no-dch
  * [000f924] buildpackage: add sloppy mode to build upstream tarballs.  When
    starting with packaging people often stumble over a mismatch between what
    dpkg-source expects to be in the tarball and the generated tarball for
    various reasons. Give them a way to say: "Use what I have on my current
    debian branch" as upstream source. Also helpful for snapshot builds with
    upstream modifications. (Closes: #861004)
  * [1113c95] clone: Add support for pseudo protocols like vcsgit: and github:
    to make cloning simpler (Closes: #861206)
  * [a4667c7] dockerfile: add src uri for the gbp clone network test

  [ Kevin Locke ]
  * [a03af0d] git-pbuilder: Check $OPTIONS for --basepath.
    Previously only the arguments were checked for --basepath.  This
    resulted in --basepath being ignored and overridden by the default when
    passed in --git-pbuilder-options
    (Closes: #856263)

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