r510: * Thanks to Benjamin Drieu <>, dh_installdocs -X now works.
I had to modify his patch to use cp --parents, since -P spews warnings now. Also, I made it continue to use cp -a if nothing is excluded, which is both faster, and means this patch is less likely to break anything if it turns out to be buggy. Also, stylistic changes. Closes: #40649 * Implemented -X for dh_installexamples as well. * dh_clean -X substvars will also work now. Closes: #66890

-* dh_installdocs needs -X support, which probably means going with tar
- instead of cp -a. Ugh.
