Usage: packit source-git update-dist-git [OPTIONS] SOURCE_GIT DIST_GIT

  Update a dist-git repository using content from a source-git repository

  Update a dist-git repository with patches created from the commits between
  <upstream_ref> and the current HEAD of the source-git repo.

  This command, by default, performs only local operations and uses the
  content of the source-git and dist-git repository as it is: does not
  checkout branches or fetches remotes.

  A commit in dist-git is created only if a commit message is provided with
  --message or --file. This commit will have a 'From-source-git-commit' Git-
  trailer appended to it, to mark the hash of the source-git commit from which
  it is created.

  The source archives are retrieved from the upstream URLs specified in the
  spec-file and uploaded to the lookaside cache in dist-git only if '--pkg-
  tool' is specified.


  To update a dist-git repo from source-git without uploading the source-
  archive to the lookaside cache and creating a commit with the updates, run:

      $ packit source-git update-dist-git src/curl rpms/curl

  To also commit the changes and upload the source-archive to the lookaside-
  cache specify -m and --pkg-tool:

      $ packit source-git update-dist-git -m'Update from source-git' \
              --pkg-tool fedpkg src/curl rpms/curl

  --upstream-ref TEXT  Git ref of the last upstream commit in the current
                       branch from which packit should generate patches (this
                       option implies the repository is source-git).
  --pkg-tool TEXT      Name or path of the packaging tool used to work with
                       sources in the dist-git repo. A variant of 'rpkg'.
                       Skip retrieving and uploading source archives to the
                       lookaside cache if not specified.
  -m, --message <msg>  Commit the changes in the dist-git repository and use
                       <msg> as the commit message.
                       Mutually exclusive with -F.
  -F, --file <file>    Commit the changes in the dist-git repository and take
                       the commit message from <file>. Use - to read from the
                       standard input.
  -h, --help           Show this message and exit.
