Bug Description

Ubuntu 12.04 Beta 2

When I run 'submittodebian --help', it doesn't show any 'help' related things, like a manpage. I suggest that it opens up the manpage when '--help' is run.

Here is the patch. It opens up the manpage when '--help' is called and then exits.

  * pbuilder-dist: Don't try to enable -updates for Debian testing
    (LP: #993006)
  * pbuilder-dist, pull-debian-source, pull-lp-source, requestsync,
    reverse-depends, submittodebian, syncpackage:
    Handle outdated distro-info data. Fall back to sane defaults where

  [ Evan Broder ]
  * backportpackage: Add -c, --close flag to include a changelog closer.
  * backportpackage: Switch to ~ubuntu12.04.1-style version numbers
    instead of ~precise1, to make our version numbers more future-proof.
  * backportpackage: Pass -v to debuild with last published version
    number. This matches the way backports have traditionally been
    generated by archive admins.
