NAME

massfile - script for massfiling bugs against Ubuntu packages

 

SYNOPSIS

massfile [options]

 

DESCRIPTION

massfile is a script for massfiling bugs against Ubuntu packages in Launchpad. It requires an instructions file describing the contents of the bug report and a list file which lists the packages which the bug will be filed against.

Templates for both files can be found in /usr/share/doc/ubuntu-dev-tools/examples.

 

OPTIONS

-l INSTANCE, --lpinstance=INSTANCE
Use the specified instance of Launchpad (e.g. "staging"), instead of the default of "production".
--no-conf
Do not read any configuration files, or configuration from environment variables.
