-dh_installdocs is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing
-documentation into usr/share/doc/package in package build directories.
-dh_installdocs automatically installs debian/copyright if it exists. If
-dh_installdocs is acting on multiple packages, debian/copyright files will be
-installed into all packages. However, if you need to have seperate copyright
-files for different binary packages, you can use files named
-Any filenames specified as parameters will be installed into the first
-package dh_installdocs is told to act on. By default, this is the first
-binary package in debian/control, but if you use -p, -i, or -a flags, it
-will be the first package specified by those flags.
-Also, debian/README.Debian (or debian/README.debian) and debian/TODO, if
-they exist, will be installed into the first binary package listed in
-debian/control, if dh_installdocs is acting on that package. Note that
-debian/TODO will be installed named TODO.Debian, if the package is not a
-debian native package. Also note that README.debian is installed as
-README.Debian, for consitency. Note that debian/package.README.Debian and
-debian/package.TODO can be used to specify files for subpackages.
-Files named debian/ can list other files to be installed.
-This program will automatically generate postinst and prerm commands to
-maintain a compatibility symlink, /usr/doc/package, to the documentation in
-/usr/share/doc/package. See
-.BR dh_installdeb (1)
-for an explanation of how this works.
-Files named debian/package.doc-base, will be installed as doc-base control
-files, and will make this program automatically generate the postinst and
-prerm commands needed to interface with the doc-base package. See
-.BR dh_installdeb (1)
-for an explanation of how this works.
-Note that the doc-id will be determined from the "Document:" entry in the
-doc-base control file in question.
-If your package needs to register more
-than one document, you need multiple files. To accomplish this, you can use
-files named debian/package.doc-base.*
-.B debhelper options
-.BR debhelper (1)
-for a list of options common to all debhelper commands.
-.B \-A, \--all
-Install all files specified by command line parameters in ALL packages
-acted on.
-.B \-n, \--noscripts
-Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.
-.B file ...
-Install these files as documentation into the first package acted on. (Or in
-all packages if -A is specified).
-Note that dh_installdocs will happily copy entire directory hierarchies if
-you ask it to (it uses cp -a internally). If it is asked to install a
-directory, it will install the complete contents of the directory.
-Note that this command is not idempotent. "dh_clean -k" should be called
-between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple
-instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.
-.BR debhelper (1)
-for a list of environment variables that affect all debhelper commands.

-It's impossible to specify filenames with spaces or other whitespace in them
-in debian/ file. This is more a historical design flaw than a bug.
