pts-subscribe - time-limited subscription to the PTS
pts-unsubscribe [options] package
sends a subscription request for package
the Package Tracking System at email@example.com
, and cancels the
subscription 30 days later.
If called as pts-unsubscribe, send an unsubscription request
for package to the Package Tracking System.
This utility is useful if a developer has made an NMU and wants to
track the package for a limited period of time.
- --until time, -u time
When at(1) should cancel the subscription. time must be
specified using at's syntax. Default is 'now + 30 days'. This
option will probably require quoting!
Don't cancel the subscription automatically. This can also be
specified as --until forever.
- --help, -h
Display a help message and exit successfully.
Display version and copyright information and exit successfully.
- DEBEMAIL, EMAIL
If one of these is set (with preference give to DEBEMAIL), then this
will be used for the subscription address. If neither is set, then
the email will be sent without a specified subscription address, and
the email's From: line will be used to determine the sender's
address. This will be determined by mail(1).
The two configuration files /etc/devscripts.conf
are sourced in that order to set configuration
variables. Command line options can be used to override configuration
file settings. Environment variable settings are ignored for this
purpose. The currently recognised variables are:
Setting this is equivalent to giving a --until option.
