Copy basic debbugs configuration files from templates
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.
debbugsconfig creates the following template configuration files in $gConfigDir (/etc/debbugs by default):
General debbugs configuration file.
Longer messages output by debbugs.
Index of maintainers for each package. This will typically be automatically generated.
Manual overrides for the maintainer index.
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.
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):
The file which records the tracking number that will be assigned to the next incoming bug report.
Real-time index of archived bugs. Created empty.
Real-time index of non-archived bugs. Created empty.
debbugsconfig creates the following documents in $gWebDir (/var/lib/debbugs/www by default):
Main contents page.
Description of how to access bug reports.
Advice on reporting bugs.
Introduction to the bug control and manipulation mail server.
Mail servers' reference card.
Introduction to the bug system request server.
