r538: * Make dh_installchangelogs install debian/NEWS files as well, as
NEWS.Debian. Make dh_compress always compress them. The idea is to make these files be in a machine parsable form, like the debian changelog, but only put newsworthy info into them. Automated tools can then display new news on upgrade. It is hoped that if this catches on it will reduce the abuse of debconf notes. See discussion on debian-devel for details.

+This option makes dh_install keep track of the files it installs, and then at

+(and symlinks) in debian/tmp were not installed to somewhere, it will
