.TH SVP "1" "February 2019" "svp 0.0.1" "User Commands"
svp \- create and manage changes to VCS repositories
svp [\-h] [\-\-version] {run,hosters,login,proposals} ...
Silver-Platter makes it possible to contribute automatable changes to source
code in a version control system.
It automatically creates a local checkout of a remote repository,
make user-specified changes, publish those changes on the remote hosting
site and then creates a pull request.
In addition to that, it can also perform basic maintenance on branches
that have been proposed for merging - such as restarting them if they
have conflicts due to upstream changes.
.B svp run [\-\-refresh] [\-\-label LABEL] [\-\-name NAME] [\-\-mode {push,attempt\-push,propose}] [\-\-commit-pending {auto,yes,no}] [\-\-dry\-run] url script
Make a change by running a script. \fBURL\fR should be the URL of a repository
to make changes to. Script will be run in a checkout of the URL, with the
opportunity to make changes. Depending on the specified mode, the changes will
be committed and pushed back to the repository at the original URL or proposed
as a change to the repository at the original URL. svp will exit 0 if no
changes have been made, 1 if at least one repository has been changed and 2 in
case of trouble.
