NAME

debbugsconfig - copy basic debbugs configuration files from templates  

SYNOPSIS

debbugsconfig  

DESCRIPTION

debbugsconfig will copy basic debbugs configuration files from templates if the files do not already exist, and will also create BTS user documentation in HTML and text. It should be run on installation and whenever /etc/debbugs/config or /etc/debbugs/text are changed.  

FILES

debbugsconfig creates the following template configuration files in $gConfigDir (/etc/debbugs by default):
config
General debbugs configuration file.
text
Longer messages output by debbugs.
Maintainers
Index of maintainers for each package. This will typically be automatically generated.
Maintainers.override
Manual overrides for the maintainer index.
pseudo-packages.description
Descriptions of any entries in the system's maintainer index that do not correspond to "real" packages. For example, the Debian Project uses pseudo-packages for bugs against facilities such as the Debian web site, the mailing list archives, and the bug tracking system itself.
sources
Index of source packages corresponding to each package. This may be used when several packages are produced from a single source, in which case the bug tracking system will group them together with links in the web front-end.

debbugsconfig creates the following template state files in $gSpoolDir (/var/lib/debbugs/spool by default):

nextnumber
The file which records the tracking number that will be assigned to the next incoming bug report.
index.archive.realtime
Real-time index of archived bugs. Created empty.
index.db.realtime
Real-time index of non-archived bugs. Created empty.

debbugsconfig creates the following documents in $gWebDir (/var/lib/debbugs/www by default):

index.html
Main contents page.
Access.html, bug-log-access.txt
Description of how to access bug reports.
Reporting.html, bug-reporting.txt
Advice on reporting bugs.
server-control.html, bug-maint-mailcontrol.txt
Introduction to the bug control and manipulation mail server.
server-refcard.html, bug-mailserver-refcard.txt
