I'm happy to announce the relesae of git-buildpackage 0.9.0~exp4:


Here's a list of changes:

git-buildpackage (0.9.0~exp4) experimental; urgency=medium

  [ Ken Dreyer ]
  * [0ca5283] doc: expand --git-pbuilder-options docs.
    Give an example of how to use the --git-pbuilder-options option, and
    explain how it interacts with git-pbuilder.

  [ Guido Günther ]
  * [b7c34cc] export-orig: drop sloppy mode from the docs since it's not
    useful here
  * [dab6761] import-dsc: cleanup error printing and exceptions.
    Raise exceptions with the error message instead of printing these first.
  * [a7b96a7] export-orig: print absolute path of created tarball.
    To avoid paths like '/a/b/../c'
  * [d5c3101] config: make dch-opt a list option.
    This unbreaks dch-opt when used in gbp.conf (Closes: #872141)
  * [5032688] spawn_dch: fail if dch failed.  We pass quiet=True to avoid
    duplicate error messages
  * [40b1883] gbp.conf: drop --noconf since it needs to be dch's first option
  * [ec643d9] Revert "buildpackage: don't prepare any tarballs in overlay mode"
    This breaks workflows where people have a detache debian/ dir
    but keep upstream VCS and pristine-tar in the same repo.
    This reverts commit 3e4e7950d2b0e81a8821f60e9a6d842c88e8b7fb.
    Thanks to Maximiliano Curia for the report
  * [d76834c] pq: use more gittish commit message in --commit.  Use present
    instead of past tense
  * [5d40d44] pq-rpm: Correctly pass abbrev to format-patch
    broken by 75e18fc5bb4831df924bc708130b0a6ab311a230
  * [b23e958] tests: remove duplication in test options
  * [f8714dc] log: don't color the log message, only the marker
    to improve readability
  * [40acd04] tests: Move pristine-tar test data to tests/data as well
  * [19310dc] Spell pristine_tar consistently
  * [9dc2129] pq: properly retry non-ascii charset on patch body encode.
    The current code tried to catch the wrong exception
  * [6d3e34c] patch_series: report decoding errors when reading patch files

  [ mci156 ]
  * [d115b67] docs: Add paragraph break
  * [e5be602] docs: Explain the v1.0 <starting point> (Closes: #872524)

  [ Chris Lamb ]
  * [f97b910] pq: make --abbrev= configurable (Closes: #872351)

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