r1984: * dh_installudev: Install udev rules directly into /etc/udev/rules.d/, not
using the symlinks. MD has agreed that this is more appropriate for most packages. * That fixes the longstanding bug that the symlink was only made on brand new installs of the package, rather than on upgrade to the first version that includes the udev rules file. Closes: #359614 * dh_installudev: Add preinst and postinst code to handle cleanly moving the rules file to the new location on upgrade. * This would be a good time for the many packages that manage rules files w/o using dh_installudev to begin to use it..

dh_installudev is a debhelper program that is responsible for
installing udev rules files.
-Files named debian/package.udev will be installed as
-etc/udev/package.rules in the package build directory.
+Files named debian/package.udev will be installed in
+etc/udev/rules.d/ in the package build directory.
-Then postinst and postrm commands are automatically generated to enable
-the rules file when the package is first installed, by creating a symlink
-to it in the /etc/udev/rules.d/ directory. These commands are inserted into
-the maintainer scripts by dh_installdeb. See L<dh_installdeb(1)> for an
-explanation of how this works.
+Code is added to the preinst and postinst to handle the upgrade from the
+old udev rules file location.
