PACKAGE DESCRIPTION
===================

Homepage: http://kitenet.net/~joey/code/pristine-tar
License : GPL-2+, BSD-2-Clause

Regenerate pristine tarballs

Regenerate a pristine upstream tarball using only a small binary delta
file and a revision control checkout of the upstream branch. The
package also includes a pristine-gz command, which can regenerate a
pristine .gz file, and a pristine-bz2 for .bz2 files. The delta file
is designed to be checked into revision control along-side the
upstream branch, thus allowing Debian packages to be built entirely
using sources in revision control, without the need to keep copies of
upstream tarballs.
