-dh_desktop is a debhelper program that registers .desktop files.
-Currently this program does not handle installation of the files, though it
-may do so at a later date. It takes care of adding maintainer script
-fragments to call F<update-desktop-database>.
-Note that since F<update-desktop-database> currently only handles mime
-types, as an optimisation, desktop files not containing MimeType fields
-will currently be ignored by dh_desktop.
+dh_desktop was a debhelper program that registers .desktop files.
+However, it no longer does anything, and is now deprecated.
