r441: * Added dh_installman, a new program that replaces dh_installmanpages.
It is not DWIM. You tell it what to install and it figures out where based on .TH section field and filename extention. I reccommend everyone begin using it, since this is much better then dh_installmanpages's evilness. I've been meaning to do this for a very long time.. Closes: #38673, #53964, #64297, #16933, #17061, #54059, #54373, #61816 * dh_installmanpages remains in the package for backwards compatability, but is mildly deprecated. * dh_testversion is deprecated; use build dependancies instead. * dh_suidregister: re-enabled. Aj thinks that requiring people to stop using it is unacceptable. Who am I to disagree with a rc bug report? Closes: #84910 It is still deprecated, and it will still whine at you if you use it. I appreciate the job everyone has been doing at switching to statoverrides.. * Since dh_debstd requires dh_installmanpages (where do you think the latter's evil interface came from?), I have removed it. It was a nice thought-toy, but nobody really used it, right? * Since the from-debstd document walks the maintainer through running dh_debstd to get a list of debhelper commands, and since that document has really outlives its usefullness, I removed it too. Use dh-make instead. * dh_installman installs only into /usr/share/man, not the X11R6 directory. Policy says "files must not be installed into `/usr/X11R6/bin/', `/usr/X11R6/lib/', or `/usr/X11R6/man/' unless this is necessary for the package to operate properly", and I really doubt a man page being in /usr/share/man is going to break many programs. Closes: #81853 (I hope the bug submitter doesn't care that dh_installmanpages still puts stuff in the X11R6/man directory.) * dh_undocumented now the same too now. * dh_installinit: installs debian/package.default files as /etc/default/ files. * Updated to current perl coding standards (use strict, lower-case variable names, pod man pages). * Since with the fixing of the man page installer issue, my checklist for debhelper v3 is complete, I pronounce debhelper v3 done! Revved the version number appropriatly (a large jump; v3 changes less than I had planned). Note that I have no plans for a v4 at this time. :-) * Testing: I have used this new version of debhelper to build a large number of my own packages, and it seems to work. But this release touches every file in this package, so be careful out there..
