Bug#952937: ability to analyze diffs rather than full source

Jelmer Vernooij
Package: decopy
Severity: wishlist

It would be great if decopy had a way to analyze diffs and to report on any
changes that need to be made to the debian/copyright file based on that.

This would be useful when e.g. importing new upstream releases, making that
sure that the debian/copyright file stays up to date.

-- System Information:
Debian Release: bullseye/sid
  APT prefers unstable
  APT policy: (500, 'unstable'), (500, 'testing')
Architecture: amd64 (x86_64)

Kernel: Linux 5.3.0-2-amd64 (SMP w/2 CPU cores)
Kernel taint flags: TAINT_OOT_MODULE, TAINT_UNSIGNED_MODULE
Locale: LANG=en_GB.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_GB.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8), LANGUAGE=en_GB.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8)
Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash
Init: systemd (via /run/systemd/system)
LSM: AppArmor: enabled

Versions of packages decopy depends on:
ii  bzip2                   1.0.8-2
pn  libimage-exiftool-perl  <none>
ii  python3                 3.7.5-3
ii  python3-debian          0.1.36
ii  python3-xdg             0.26-1
ii  xz-utils                5.2.4-1+b1

Versions of packages decopy recommends:
pn  python3-regex  <none>
pn  python3-tqdm   <none>

decopy suggests no packages.

You can just run decopy again after importing a new upstream and it will
update your copyright. Reading diffs would just be faster.

Cheers Jochen
