r522: * Set DH_ALWAYS_EXCLUDE=CVS and debhelper will exclude CVS directories
from processing by any command that takes a -X option, and dh_builddeb will also go in and rm -rf any that still sneak into the build tree. * dh_install: A patch from Eric Dorland <> adds support for --sourcedir, which allows debian/package.files files to be moved over to debian/package.install, and just work. Closes: #146847 * dh_movefiles: don't do file tests in no-act mode. Closes: #144573 * dh_installdebconf: pass --drop-old-templates to debconf-mergetemplate. Means debhelper has to depend on debconf-utils 1.1.1.
