.SH NAME
amo-changelog \- fetch Version History of an addon
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B amo-changelog
[\fIoptions\fP]
\fIextension\fR
.SH DESCRIPTION
.B amo-changelog
fetches the Version History of an addon from the Mozilla Extensions website.
It is meant to offer an easy way to include upstream changelogs in Debian
packages of mozilla extensions - in many cases, this is not contained in the
upstream source code repository, but is available on said website.

The \fIextension\fR argument is its short name, as used by the website. For
example, the homepage for "Adblock Plus" is
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/, so the
short name would be "adblock-plus".

Here is an example for debian/rules:

# if using debhelper
.br
override_dh_installchangelogs:
.br
	dh_installchangelogs debian/changelog.upstream

\[char46]PHONY: get-orig-changelog
.br
get-orig-changelog:
.br
	amo-changelog adblock-plus > debian/changelog.upstream

Using this approach, one would save the output file (debian/changelog.upstream)
as part of the Debian packaging. When updating the package with a new upstream
release, one would run `debian/rules get-orig-changelog`
