Gmane
From: Emil Nowak <emil5 <at> go2.pl>
Subject: Bug#416437: dpkg-dev: dpkg-buildpackage asks for key passphrase after displaying help
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.debian.devel.bugs.general
Date: Tuesday 27th March 2007 22:18:50 UTC (over 9 years ago)
Package: dpkg-dev
Version: 1.13.25
Severity: minor

When you try --help switch you will get something like this:

$ dpkg-buildpackage --help
Usage: dpkg-buildpackage [ ...]

Options:
  -r
[...]
You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for
user ...
[...]

Of curse this question about passphrase for gpg key is not useful here.

And btw:
It would be nice If we could see help output when current dir!=sources dir.
Now when I try to see help, and my current directory is home dir
dpkg-builpackage displays only this warning:
~$ dpkg-buildpackage --help
 dpkg-parsechangelog: error: cannot open debian/changelog to find format:
No such file or directory
 dpkg-buildpackage: cannot determine name of current package
~$

I would be nice to see help messages in every directory.
