Dpkg::Changelog::Entry::Debian - represents a Debian changelog entry
This object represents a Debian changelog entry. It implements the
generic interface Dpkg::Changelog::Entry. Only functions specific to this
implementation are described below.
$regex_header, $regex_trailer are two regular expressions that can be used
to match a line and know whether it's a valid header/trailer line.
The matched content for $regex_header is the source package name ($1), the
version ($2), the target distributions ($3) and the options on the rest
of the line ($4). For $regex_trailer, it's the maintainer name ($1), its
email ($2), some blanks ($3) and the timestamp ($4).
my @items = $entry->get_change_items()
Return a list of change items. Each item contains at least one line.
A change line starting with an asterisk denotes the start of a new item.
Any change line like ``[ Raphaël Hertzog ]'' is treated like an item of its
own even if it starts a set of items attributed to this person (the
following line necessarily starts a new item).
my @errors = $entry->check_header()
my @errors = $entry->check_trailer()
Return a list of errors. Each item in the list is an error message
describing the problem. If the empty list is returned, no errors
have been found.
Normalize the content. Strip whitespaces at end of lines, use a single
empty line to separate each part.
my @closed_bugs = find_closes($changes)
Takes one string as argument and finds ``Closes: #123456, #654321'' statements
as supported by the Debian Archive software in it. Returns all closed bug
numbers in an array.
