Bug Description

Apparently, sponsor-patch can be used to sponsor syncs as well. The man page doesn't seem to mention this anywhere.

This bug was fixed in the package ubuntu-dev-tools - 0.134

ubuntu-dev-tools (0.134) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Stefano Rivera ]
  * mk-sbuild: Correct typo in variable name. Thanks Laurent Declercq.
    (Closes: #645917)
  * Remove massfile. Neglected and unused (LP: #145598)
  * syncpackage, requestsync: Sync from testing for LTSs (LP: #876400)
  * syncpackage:
    - Ignore CURRENT blacklisting: it's buggy, and we don't have a good use
      for it.
    - Always display blacklist comments, if they exist.
    - Display timestamps for DSD blacklist comments.
    - Add --fakesync option, relegating --no-lp to really crazy corner cases.
  * sponsor-patch: Compare new sync version to the current Ubuntu version,
    rather than itself (LP: #878499)
  * sponsor-patch.1: Mention syncs (LP: #882085)

  [ Benjamin Drung ]
  * syncpackage: Catch user abort.

  [ Scott Moser ]
  * mk-sbuild: better support apt http proxy (LP: #881654)
