r518: * dh_movefiles has long been a sore point in debhelper. Inherited
from debstd, its interface and implementation suck, and I have maintained it while never really deigning to use it. Now there is a remplacment: dh_install, which ... - copies files, doesn't move them. Closes: #75360, #82649 - doesn't have that whole annoying debian/package.files vs. debian/files mess, as it uses debian/install. - supports copying empty subdirs. Closes: #133037 - doesn't use tar, thus no error reproting problems. Closes: #112538 - files are listed relative to the pwd, debian/tmp need not be used at all, so no globbing issues. Closes: #100404 - supports -X. Closes: #116902 - the whole concept of moving files out of a directory is gone, so this bug doesn't really apply. Closes: #120026 - This is exactly what Bill Allombert asked for in #117383, even though I designed it seemingly independantly. Thank you Bill! Closes: #117383 * Made debhelper's debian/rules a lot simpler by means of the above. * Updated example rules file to use dh_install. Also some reordering and other minor changes. * dh_movefiles is lightly deprecated, and when you run into its bugs and bad design, you are incouraged to just use dh_install instead. * dh_fixperms: in v4 only, make all files in bin/ dirs +x. Closes: #119039 * dh_fixperms: in v4 only, make all files in etc/init.d executable (of course there's -X ..) * dh_link: in v4 only, finds existing, non-policy-conformant symlinks and corrects them. This has the side effect of making dh_link idempotent. * Added a -h/--help option. This seems very obvious, but it never occured to me before.. * use v4 for building debhelper itself * v4 mode is done, you may now use it without fear of it changing. (This idea of this upload is to get v4 into woody so people won't run into many issues backporting from sarge to woody later on. Packages targeted for woody should continue to use whatever compatability level they are using.)

+=head1 SYNOPSIS
+
+B<dh_install> [B<-X>I<item>] [S<I<debhelper options>>] [S<I<file [...] dest>>]
+
+=head1 DESCRIPTION
+
+dh_install is a debhelper program that handles installing files into package
+build directories. There are many dh_install* commands that handle installing
+specific types of files such as documentation, examples, man pages, and so on,
+and they should be used when possible as they often have extra intelligence for
+those particular tasks. dh_install, then, is useful for installing everything
+else, for which no particular intelligence is needed. It is a replacement for
+the old dh_movefiles command.
+
+Files named debian/package.install list the files to install into each
+package and where they should be installed to. The format is a set of
+lines, where each line lists a file or files to install, and at the end of
+the line tells the directory it should be installed in. The name of the
+files (or directories) to install should be given relative to the current
+directory, while the installation directory is given relative to the
+package build directory. You may use wildcards in the names of the files to
+install.
+
+This program may be used in one of two ways. If you just have a file or two
+that the upstream Makefile does not install for you, you can run dh_install
+on them to move them into place. On the other hand, maybe you have a large
+package that builds multiple binary packages. You can use the upstream Makefile
+to install it all into debian/tmp, and then use dh_install to copy
+directories and files from there into the proper package build directories.

+=head1 OPTIONS
+
+=over 4
+
+=item B<-Xitem>, B<--exclude=item>
+
+Exclude files that contain "item" anywhere in their filename from
+being installed.
+
+=item B<--autodest>
+
+Guess as the destination directory to install things to. If this is
+specified, you should not list destination directories in
+debian/package.install files or on the command line. Instead, dh_install
+will guess as follows:
+
+Strip off debian/tmp from the front of the filename, of it is present, and
+install into the dirname of the filename. So if the filename is
+debian/tmp/usr/bin, then that directory will be copied to
+debian/package/usr/. If the filename is debian/tmp/etc/passwd, it will be
+copied to debian/package/etc/.
+
+Note that if you list only a filename on a line by itself in a
+debian/package.install file, with no explicit destination, then dh_install
+will automatically guess the destination even if this flag is not set.
+
+=item I<file [...] dest>
+
+Lists files (or directories) to install and where to install them to.
+The files will be installed into the first package dh_install acts on.
