I'm happy to announce the relesae of git-buildpackage 0.9.1:


Here's a list of changes:

git-buildpackage (0.9.1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Kill use of six.*
  * Add gbp import-dsc hook for pk4.
    Can be enabled via
        mkdir -p ~/.config/pk4/hooks-enabled/unpack/
        ln -s /usr/share/pk4/hooks-available/unpack/gbp \
  * [f18d6b4] import-dsc: improve error message when Debian branch does not exist
  * [01da1e6] import-dsc: make sure we don't create 'master' if not needed.
    This way we only get the debian- and upstream-branch in empty repos and
    not a pointless 'master' if debian-branch != master.
    It also makes sure we don't need --create-missing-branches on empty
    repos where it is pointless. (Closes: #750962)
  * [cec2123] docs: Add rpm tool manpages to manual too.
    On non-Debian platform it's sometimes cumbersome to build the manpages
    so make sure we have them available on the web at least.
  * [8e67334] Lock flake8 version.
    We don't want to play catchup with new flake8 checks but rather
    update and fix things in a controlled manner.
  * [f1bf7c3] command_wrappers: report proper exception on bad process arguments.
    If subprocess.communicate raised a TypeError due to bad arguments 'ret'
    was undefined and therefore the real error reason got masked.
    Closes parts of #879495
  * [280f4c9] pq: kill useless use of sed. This also broke paths containing
    spaces. Thanks to André Althaus for a proposed fix.
  * [ca273d9] dscfile: parse out upstream signatures as well
  * [5db9f15] dscfile: Make sure we match on additional tarballs containing
    uppercase (Closes: #880228)

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