r1596: * Remove duplicate packages from DOPACKAGES after argument processing.
Closes: #112950 * dh_compress: deal with links pointing to links pointing to compressed files, no matter what order find returns them. Closes: #204169 * dh_installmodules, dh_installpam, dh_installcron, dh_installinit, dh_installogrotate: add --name= option, that can be used to specify the name to use for the file(s) installed by these commands. For example, dh_installcron --name=foo will install debian/package.foo.cron.daily to etc/cron.daily/foo. Closes: #138202, #101003, #68545, #148844 (Thanks to Thomas Hood for connecting these bug reports.) * dh_installinit: deprecated --init-script option in favor of the above. * Add dh_installppp. Closes: #43403

-for example, if you need to pass -p to all debhelper commands that will be

-older debhelpers will ignore it and do things you don't want them to. One very
-good way to set DH_OPTIONS is by using "Target-specific Variable Values" in
