+debhelper (4.0.0) unstable; urgency=low
+ * dh_movefiles has long been a sore point in debhelper. Inherited
+ from debstd, its interface and implementation suck, and I have maintained
+ it while never really deigning to use it. Now there is a remplacment:
+ dh_install, which ...
+ - copies files, doesn't move them. Closes: #75360, #82649
+ - doesn't have that whole annoying debian/package.files vs. debian/files
+ mess, as it uses debian/install.
+ - supports copying empty subdirs. Closes: #133037
+ - doesn't use tar, thus no error reproting problems. Closes: #112538
+ - files are listed relative to the pwd, debian/tmp need not be used at
+ all, so no globbing issues. Closes: #100404
+ - supports -X. Closes: #116902
+ - the whole concept of moving files out of a directory is gone, so this
+ bug doesn't really apply. Closes: #120026
+ - This is exactly what Bill Allombert asked for in #117383, even though I
+ designed it seemingly independantly. Thank you Bill! Closes: #117383
+ * Made debhelper's debian/rules a lot simpler by means of the above.
+ * Updated example rules file to use dh_install. Also some reordering and
+ other minor changes.
+ * dh_movefiles is lightly deprecated, and when you run into its bugs and
+ bad design, you are incouraged to just use dh_install instead.
+ * dh_fixperms: in v4 only, make all files in bin/ dirs +x. Closes: #119039
+ * dh_fixperms: in v4 only, make all files in etc/init.d executable (of
+ course there's -X ..)
+ * dh_link: in v4 only, finds existing, non-policy-conformant symlinks
+ and corrects them. This has the side effect of making dh_link idempotent.
+ * Added a -h/--help option. This seems very obvious, but it never occured to
+ me before..
+ * use v4 for building debhelper itself
+ * v4 mode is done, you may now use it without fear of it changing.
+ (This idea of this upload is to get v4 into woody so people won't run into
+ many issues backporting from sarge to woody later on. Packages targeted
+ for woody should continue to use whatever compatability level they are
