* r518: * dh_movefiles has long been a sore point in debhelper. Inheritedjoey2002-04-12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | 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 using.)

* r510: * Thanks to Benjamin Drieu <benj@debian.org>, dh_installdocs -X now ↵joey2002-02-17
| | | | | | | | | | | | 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

* r506: * Introduced the debian/compat file. This is the new, preferred way ↵joey2002-01-27
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | to say what debhelper compatability level your package uses. It has the big advantage of being available to debhelper when you run it at the command line, as well as in debian/rules. * A new v4 feature: dh_installinit, in v4 mode, will use invoke-rc.d. This is in v4 for testing, but I may well roll it back into v3 (and earlier) once woody is released and I don't have to worry about breaking things (and, presumably, once invoke-rc.d enters policy). * Some debhelper commands will now build up a new substvars variable, ${misc:Depends}, based on things they know your package needs to depend on. For example, dh_installinit in v4 mode adds sysvinit (>= 2.80-1) to that dep list, and dh_installxfonts adds a dep on xutils. This variable should make it easier to keep track of what your package needs to depends on, supplimenting the ${shlibs:Depends} and ${perl:Depends} substvars. Hmm, this appears to be based loosely on an idea by Masato Taruishi <taru@debian.org>, filtered through a long period of mulling it over. Closes: #76352 * Use the addsubstvar function I wrote for the above in dh_perl too.
* r505: * Improved dh_installxfonts some more:joey2002-01-27
| | | | | - Better indenting of generated code. - Better ordering of generated code (minor fix).
* r504: * dh_installman: more documentation about the .TH line. Closes: #129205joey2002-01-27
| | | | | | | | | | | * dh_installxfonts: - Packages that use this should depend on xutils. See man page. - However, if you really want to, you can skip the dep, and the postinst will avoid running program that arn't available. Closes: #131053 - Use update-fonts-dir instead of handling encodings ourselves. Yay! - Pass only the last component of the directory name to update-fonts-*, since that's what they perfer now. - Other changes, chould fully comply with Debian X font policy now.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | jump), and it is only for the very brave right now since I will unhesitatingly break compatability in v4 mode as I'm developing it. Currently, updating to v4 mode will only make dh_makeshlibs -V generate shared library deps that omit the debian part of the version number. The reasoning behind this change is that the debian revision should not typically break binary compatability, that existing use of -V is causing too tight versioned deps, and that if you do need to include the debian revision for some reason, you can always write it out by hand. Closes: #101497 * dh_testversion is deprecated -- use build deps instead. A warning message is now output when it runs. Currently used by: 381 packages. * dh_installxaw is deprecated -- xaw-wrappers in no longer in the distribution. A warning message is now output when it runs. Currently used by: 3 packages (bugs filed). * Added referneces to menufile in dh_installmenu man page. Closes: #127978 (dh_make is not a part of debhelper, if you want it changed, file a bug on dh-make.)

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | data in a file. Substvars data may be put in debian/package.substvars. (Those files used to be used by debhelper for automatically generated data, but it uses a different internal filename now). It will be merged with any automatically determined substvars data. See bug #98819 * I want to stress that no one should ever rely in internal, undocumented debhelper workings. Just because debhelper uses a certian name for some internally used file does not mean that you should feel free to modify that file to your own ends in a debian package. If you do use it, don't be at all suprised when it breaks. If you find that debhelper is lacking a documented interface for something that you need, ask for it! (debhelper's undocumented, internal use only files should now all be prefixed with ".debhelper")

* r472: * Fixed issues with extended parameters to dh_gencontrol including ↵joey2001-05-29
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | spaces and quotes. This was some histirical cruft that deals with splitting up the string specified by -u, and it should not have applied to the set of options after --. Now that it's fixed, any and all programs that support a -- and options after it, do not require any special quoting of the succeeding options. Quote just like you would in whatever program those options go to. So, for example, dh_gencontrol -Vblah:Depends='foo, bar (>= 1.2)' will work just as you would hope. This fix does NOT apply to -u; don't use -u if you must do something complex. Closes: #89311 * Made escape_shell output a lot better.
